On Thursday 6 March, Panathlon visited Birmingham Metropolitian College, Sutton Codfields in Birmingham for the second of our semi-finals. Wilson Stuart were the outstanding school of the day winning every competition and going through to the final on the 1st April in a very strong position.

A big thank you goes to the 28 leaders from Birmingham Metropolitian College, Queensbury School and Wilson Stuart School you all did a superb job!
One of the Teachers said, “Its a Great experience – all of the students thoroughly enjoyed the day and tried their hardest. Our leaders all enjoyed the experience of working with others. It’s really good for them to help build their confidence in all areas of their lives.”
Jay and Ryan MLD – Queensbury School- “We both felt good helping younger children to learn how to play different games with other children.”
Hazara SLD – Wilson Stuart- “I have found that leading an activity is harder than it looks as there is so much to do. However it became easier once I understood it. The competition also taught me about responsibility and making sure that I gave appropriate answers to competitor’s questions. I have enjoyed the day.”
