Primary Inclusive Rowing 2018

It was a full house this morning for our annual Primary Inclusive Rowing event at Tor Bridge Primary.

8 schools brought along their teams to take part in some indoor Rowing challenges and fun games. We had a team of fantastic young leaders from Tor Bridge High with us today—they received some training with Josh Gilbert before the event and then they were ready to dive in and get the children on the machines.

Children from Cann Bridge, Compton, Eggbuckland Vale, Leigham, Oreston, Plympton St. Maurice, Pomphlett and Tor Bridge Primary all came along to have a go at various challenges and activities on the rowing machines, complete 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.

Well done to everyone for getting involved and trying new challenges—you all did brilliantly! I would like to say a huge thank you to Josh for helping me to set up, train the leaders and run the event today and also a big thank you to the young leaders—you were brilliant with the children and really made sure that they enjoyed themselves.

Thank you all for bringing your teams along —I hope that they all enjoyed it as much as I did.
