Colchester High School Pupils Show Leadership at Panathlon Challenge

Colchester High School Year 10 pupils did a fantastic job this week acting as Young Leaders at the Panathlon Challenge Essex semi finals that took place at Columbus College in Chelmsford on Friday 28th April and involved 75 children from 6 schools.

Mr Young, Principal said, “This is such a fantastic opportunity for the young disabled students and also for our students to help facilitate the competition by being trained up as officials in a number of disability sports, including the Paralympic sport, Boccia. Our pupils have gained valuable experience not only in disability sport but also in sports event management and we really appreciate this opportunity.”
