On Monday 15th July, Steven and Liam made their way to Heathcote School, eager to deliver the best ‘Keep in Touch’ deaf children’s sports day yet. Around 60 participants came from all over North East London and Essex, ranging from age 8 to 14 from 9 different schools. It was lovely to see some familiar faces from over the years and also wonderful to see some new faces!
We split them into two groups matching their age. We started with the younger ones and had a series of different relay races including egg and spoon, dribbling with a football and hula hoops. Everyone enjoyed themselves before we moved onto Tug of War, which was a feisty contest to say the least!
We then had the older ones and we organised slightly different activities following the amazing World Cup win from England Cricket Team. We led a cricket activity that involved 4 teams and had a really fun game. One team were very competitive and won the game with lot of runs! We also had Tug of War between 4 teams and everyone enjoyed this.
At the end of the day – we explained who we are and hope to encourage them to come to Remark! Community Summer playscheme and Youth Club. Fingers crossed that we will have some new faces during the summer holidays!
Remark Community! would like to say a big thank you to Heathcote School, especially Oliver Monksfield and Naomi Jarrett for inviting us to run the sports day and we both enjoyed it very much! We will come back again next year as it is not to be missed by Remark! Community team!
