Primary Inclusive Rowing 07.11.2017

A full house this morning for our annual Primary Inclusion Rowing event at Tor Bridge Primary.

8 schools brought along their teams to take part in some Indoor Rowing activities facilitated by Rob Wright and some fantastic young leaders from Tor Bridge High.

Children from Cann Bridge School, Elburton, High Street, Marine Academy Primary, Montpelier, Oreston, Plympton St. Maurice and Wembury all came along to have a go at various challenges and activities on the Rowing machines, completed personal and team competitions and generally enjoy the different activities laid on for them by the young leaders.

Throughout the morning each child had a go at completing some distance challenges and were then encouraged to try to beat their own scores as well as that of their team mates and other schools. There was even a Fishing Game that proved very popular and got everyone feeling a little competitive.

We celebrated the value of Self Belief this morning as for some children this was a completely new experience and we talked about how important it is to have a go at new things and to believe that you can do it; it was amazing to witness some previously reluctant children getting on the machines and having a go at Rowing. Well done to every one of you today for getting involve and trying new challenges—you did brilliantly!

I would like to say a huge thank you to Rob Wright who set this all up for us today and also to the staff at Cann Bridge & Tor Bridge Primary for the use of their fantastic facilities. I would also like to thank the young leaders from Tor Bridge High who were on hand today to help and lead some activities; they helped with setting up, ran activities and races and were fantastic with the children—on behalf of all of the schools—thank you.

I hope you all enjoyed the event and are keen to come along to our next Inclusion event—check out the Inclusion Programme page on the PSSP website for more details.
