The School Games Wycombe and Marlow twitter page is helping students stay physically active from home during the lockdown.
Set up in 2012, following the highly successful London Olympics, School Games aims to help increase participation levels in physical activity throughout the country.
Currently there are School Games organisers planning and running sporting competitions throughout the calendar year across a variety of sports for both primary and secondary schools in their respective areas.
During the current lockdown situation daily posts are being made on the School Games Wycombe and Marlow twitter page with different ways to stay physically active from home which students and parents are being encouraged to follow.
Starting on Monday 4th May 2020, School Games Wycombe and Marlow will also be participating in the MK & Bucks Virtual School Games Competition.
The competition will include weekly challenges posted on twitter that students can complete at home to keep the local community fit and healthy. There is even the chance to win certificates and medals while competing against everyone across the county representing High Wycombe.
An example of the challenges include the ‘Hand stand shirt challenge’ shown in the post below from the School Games Wycombe and Marlow twitter page :
This week we will be running our own Virtual School Games event!
Send in your video with your time and see if you can beat me!
Medals and certificates will be sent out to winners in years 5-6, KS3 and KS4!
