/PRNewswire/ --
Children from 19 of
Greater Manchester's
special educational needs schools
came together on the 21st June to enjoy a day of fun and sporting activities at
Manchester's
famous Sport City. Each SEN school was represented by a team
of up to 10 children who participated in a number of activities specifically
designed in partnership with Sportshall Athletics for children with autism,
Down's syndrome and a range of physical disabilities.
The championship, sponsored by the
Manchester
branch of education staffing
specialist, Randstad Education, saw pupils with disabilities between the ages of
5 - 16 enjoy a number of athletic events including long jump, javelin and sprint
relays.
Pupils from New Greenhall School, Atherton won the primary competition with
Millwood School, Bury receiving a special commendation.
Rumworth School in
Bolton
won the secondary school competition with Grange
School in
Manchester
also receiving a special commendation trophy.
Martin Hopkins, a business manager at Randstad Education in
Manchester
who
often recruits for SEN teacher jobs, comments: "We're delighted to be able to
host this free event for the second year running. Sport is an incredibly powerful
medium which helps children with special needs to discover new horizons and
build confidence. The event also gives the children the opportunity to compete
in a friendly and inclusive atmosphere, allowing them to make friends with
other pupils with additional needs from across the region. We launched the
championship in 2011 and the 2012 event was another fantastic day. A huge
thank you to everyone who took part."
