Get ready for our Virtual School Games Paralympic Festival!

This year, we will be running our second ever Virtual School Games County Festival - the LRS Virtual School Games Paralympic Festival.

We hope that this interactive County-wide event will allow lots of young people across all schools in the County the opportunity to participate in and experience a range of Paralympic Sports activities, in school, at home and via our Virtual Together mobile app platform.

Launching on Monday 17th May and running throughout the week, we would love to see as many of you as possible involved with lots of opportunities available to take part.

On our dedicated Virtual School Games Paralympic Festival web page you can access a whole range of resources from a number of experts in the sports concerned. Lesson / session plans, skills / activity cards and introductory videos about the sports so you can learn about them as well as experiencing them for yourselves. Your school also has the chance to sign up to our competitive or non-competitive virtual boccia competition. In addition to that, our Virtual Together app will host a number of challenges throughout the week so you can showcase the skills you learn and use them to compete with your friends, schoolmates and other people from schools across Leicestershire, Leicester and Rutland.
