Cornwall Virtual School Games 2020
The Cornwall Virtual School Games, sponsored by the University of Exeter ran from Monday 22nd - Friday 26th June 2020 and had over 10,000 unique participants and nearly 40,000 individual results registered, which is AMAZING!
During this week children completed 14 different sport-based challenges which were for all children of all abilities in Cornwall, from reception through to year 10, see below for all the different challenges and the Cornwall School Games Facebook page@CornwallSchoolGames
The #CornwallVSG2020 started on Monday 22nd June 2020 with a virtual opening ceremony and ended on Friday 26th June with a closing 'congratulations' ceremony which you can see below as well.
There was one sport-based challenge per day with Athletics on Monday, Bowls & Boccia on Tuesday, Dance & Gymnastics on Wednesday, Volleyball on Thursday, Tennis on Friday and throughout the whole week 'Making Up The Miles'.
All Results were announced on Friday 26th June 2020 and can be seen in the attachments below.
By getting involved in this year's Games young people across Cornwall and their teachers and parents had the chance to learn something new, connect with their friends from school and family, get physically active and give some of their time to gain points for their school. We also hope that they felt positive by the end of the week, supporting them towards their #5waystowellbeing and check out the dally videos below.
