Panathlon is unique in bringing everyone together; people with learning difficulties or physical disabilities – they all get to take part, which is great. It’s a level playing field and everyone has a chance of competing.
Dan O’Brien, teacher at Woodfield School, Brent
Panathlon has been the main driving force behind sport in school. There was never any place for us to go and play sport of a competitive nature until Panathlon came to Essex, so we owe pretty much everything that we do to them.
Brandon Mullin, Head of PE at Beacon Hill Academy, Thurrock
Panathlon is about everyone being equal and able to play. So many people get the chance to play. The experience for our kids is really positive. It’s just brilliant.
Lauren Hastings, PE teacher at Marjorie McClure School, Bromley
It was great to do sports that relate to our kids. Also, this competition is all about learning about winning and losing. Too often activities we attend don’t have this.
Wendy Moran, teacher at Maltby Hilltop School, Rotherham
It’s nice to meet new people from other schools. I enjoy school, but this is a good opportunity to come out and take part. It feels good to be representing the school.
