Twelve Year 7 students had a fantastic time at the PowerHouseGames at the University of Roehampton on Tuesday 14 November. Activities at PowerHouseGames are specially designed to be accessible and fun for everyone, old and young, with disabilities and none, sporty and not. They are organised by the charity Power2Inspire, whose founder John Willis (pictured with the students), gave Woldingham’s Faith in Action talk in September.
Aayan and Tess, Year 7
We really appreciated being invited to the PowerHouseGames, where no one is left behind on the bench. We took part in lots of activities, including sitting down volleyball, sitting down netball and boccia. We found it very exciting to learn new sports and we enjoyed learning how to work together in groups with people from other schools. It was fun to compete with our new friends against the other groups. Halfway through the games, each group got their own basket full of snacks and juice boxes.
There was a ceremony at the end of the games, where we all received a medal and a certificate.
