Worcestershire Virtual School Games
With the return to school in 2021 continuing to be very challenging, and the continued cancellation of events, Active Herefordshire and Worcestershire and the School Games Organisers have been working hard to bring the annual School Games festivals to school sites. In the autumn term, Worcestershire schools took part in exciting sport and physical activity challenges including Pentathlon, Infant Agility and New Age Kurling. These challenges provided children and young people with the opportunity to compete against themselves, striving to achieve their personal best, as well as against others to improve their performance as part of a team.
So far, over 18,200* young people from 210* primary, middle, high and special schools in the county have taken part in the Worcestershire Virtual School Games. (*non-unique)
