January saw the start of our Sports Leadership events commence with the Panathlon Championships at Costello Stadium, Hull. Twenty two of our fantastic sports leaders assisted in the running, organisation and set up of the Special Schools event which hosted, in total, thirteen schools from East Riding. The sports leaders were in charge of setting up and running events which involved explaining the event to the staff and children, motivating and encouraging them and ensuring the event ran smoothly and safely.
This was the first time Cottingham High School leaders worked with organisers of Panathlon and the girls didn't fail to impress. Tony and Howard, Panathlon event organisers commented on the professionalism and brilliance of the leaders 'We host events like this all over the country and encounter 1000's of Sports Leaders. None of which have been as superb as those from Cottingham High School'.
Panathlon have requested our Sports Leaders for their events in Sheffield- Well done ladies!
Our next big event is the Go Run for Fun Event at Brantingham, which hosts over a hundred schools and brings in over two thousand primary school children to compete in a fun run. This event was televised last year, so keep your eyes peeled!
