In early May, Panathlon visited Brent Knoll School in Lewisham to deliver an in school Primary Panathlon coaching session. 25 students from 4 different classes across the school took part in the various activities which included Boccia Blast, Flight Path and New Age Kurling- which seemed to be a real favourite among both students and teachers!

Although Brent Knoll have previously competed at a Panathlon competition, representing Lewisham at the Panathlon swimming competition in January, this was the first time where these particular students have taken part. The day served as a fantastic introduction to the Panathlon sports and we now hope that Brent Knoll will be able to compete against other schools later in the year.

“The activities today were brilliant for our pupils- often they struggle to maintain concentration but today they each managed 45 minutes of sporting activity and all had a really great time. It’s great that the activities also incorporate some simple numeracy along with improving skills such as teamwork and taking turns.” Mrs Douglas, Teacher at Brent Knoll School, Lewisham
