Win a share of £20,000 for PE Equipment at your school

Today, Sports for Schools and The East Anglian Daily Times have launched a new competition offering infant and primary schools the chance to win a share of £20,000 worth of sports equipment. Tokens will be printed in the EADT. Tokens printed between Monday and Friday will be worth 10 points and tokens printed on Saturday will be worth 25 points.A competition spokesman said: “Sport and physical education is fundamental to both the health and early development of children and by participating in this fantastic promotion your school could receive a legacy that lasts for many years.” Every school that collects 1,000 points will receive a FREE starter sports pack worth over £100.

So far, over 100 schools in Suffolk and North-East Essex have registered to take part in the competition. David Brook, PE Coordinator of Sir Robert Hitcham’s Primary School said, “We really value sports in our school and are constantly looking for new ways to improve the provision for our children. It would make a huge difference. Our budget is so tight and it would enable us to purchase sports equipment normally out of our reach.”

Schools will have until the end of April to collect their tokens.

GB Wheelchair Rugby Player Stuart Robinson inspires children at Witton-le-Wear Primary School

Stuart Robinson visited Witton-le-Wear Primary School on Friday 12th February to run a fun fitness session with the children and motivate them with his awe-inspiring story. Stuart was a RAF corporal and was serving in Afghanistan when his vehicle was hit by a Taliban bomb. In order to survive, he had to have both legs amputated but this has certainly not held him back! Stuart went on to win Gold with Great Britain in The Invictus Games and is currently working hard in the hope of competing for Team GB at Rio in the Summer. Acting head teacher Sharon Walker said: “We’ve learnt a lot about Stuart and I hope that the pupils are inspired to get active and try sport and also see that with a bit of perseverance and determination anything is possible.” Find out more here.
