Schools come together for inclusive sports day at Felsted School

We are delighted to “borrow” the report published in the Felsted School newsletter!  It read as follows:

“Felsted (in association with Silver Screen Studio and Gilbert and Grays) organised the Felsted School Power House Games 2019. The games brought Felsted Prep School, Felsted Senior School, Cookes Spinney Primary School, Columbus School, Duncombe Prep School and Felsted Staff and Parents together to take part in an extravaganza of sport. Each team was made up of one member from each of the schools with an adult to run the team. The onus was on the team to work together to get the most out of every sporting activity. The diverse ability and ages of the team made for a wonderful morning of inclusive sport.

I would like to thank our Felsted parents for being such good sports and amazing ambassadors for the school, along with our own prep and senior school pupils who as always displayed sporting spirit and a kind heart. Our visitors were no less impressive and the pupils from Cookes Spinney and Columbus School certainly left with plenty of smiles. It was also great to see a fellow prep school in Duncombe, get so much from the day and thank you to their staff for bringing over such a great group of pupils.

Each team took part in 5 sporting activities, ably run by our very own Lower Sixth BTEC PE students and John Willis, Jememy Maklin and Patrick Gosling. John Willis works tirelessly for Power2inspire and it was again a pleasure to meet him today and work with him to present such a lovely event.

The morning was a great success and please do check out when you can the amazing work of John and his team ​http://www.power2inspire.org.uk/​. Felsted will be looking to run the Felsted School PowerHouse Games in November 2020, so please do get involved next year. Thanks again for all those who took part today and sport didn’t leave anyone on the bench this morning at Felsted.”
