Today’s Panathlon involved the Sittingbourne Community College final year sixth form students as our Panathlon Officials. The group of 12 leaders were involved in leading all the sports throughout the competition.
This was the first time (to my knowledge!) our Panathlon Leaders involvement also doubled-up as ‘course work’ for the students BTEC in Sports – contributing towards their required 10 hours of volunteering with children with disabilities in sport. This is one area we hope to develop in the future, really adding value to the leaders we are working with.
