The Challenger Games is about involvement, teamwork and participation, all of which the Smeeth children showed in abundance at the Julie Rose Stadium.
The children took part in team building activities of transporting bodies and equipment across a tyre and plank combination, and then blindfolded stretcher bearing. They learnt that guiding people who cannot see over and under obstacles was not easy, and careful communication was important.
They then played Boccia, which is similar to lawn bowls, and we discovered Rhinna was a natural at the game. Then they took part in some handball activities and running saloms, before javelin and speed bounce. Each child tried their best, supported each other and had fun.
