Rio Richy, one of our Young Leaders from La Swap said, “I have enjoyed being an official at today’s Panathlon Competition and I know I have gained some valuable experience that I can take away with me; particularly how to work with children with disabilities and how to adapt sports to involve them. The day ran very smoothly and everyone that won medals should be very proud. Working with children with special needs has really inspired me and it was different to work I have done before.” We were also joined by Young Leaders with moderate Learning Difficulties from West Lea School in Enfield. Well done to you all!
