The Panathlon Team visited Greenvale School today to involve extra students that did not compete at the main competition in February. Lewisham are the new addition to the East London region and today’s event was to give them extra competitive experience, so they can compete fairly against the likes of the East London Champions, Newham in the future.
Panathlon delivered an inter school tournament involving 28 students split into 2 teams, competing in New Age Kurling, Boccia and Athletics (Precision Bean Bag, Standing Long Jump & Shot Put). By the end of the morning all the students has competed in all the sports. The “Green Team” won convincingly, taking all the events.
Lynne Haines, Head teacher, was involved with presenting the medals in the closing ceremony. This afternoon the 2 competing teams will present their medals to the rest of the school in assembly. Talk quickly turned to next academic year and how Lewisham can build on their involvement for future years participation in Panathlon.
