On Monday 10 April Victoria (Yr.10), Lorell (Yr.12), D’Yah (Yr.8), Joe (Yr.12) and Timothy (Yr.12) all attended the annual ‘Time to Shine ‘residential at Stoke Mandeville Stadium.

 

 'Time to Shine', is a key part of the East London post-Paralympic legacy programme, Motivate East, is an annual pan-disability residential event which takes place at Stoke Mandeville Stadium. ‘Time to Shine’ provides an opportunity for over 100 young disabled people from across East London to participate in a broad range of sports activities. The event is open to young disabled people aged 11-18 years old from the following East London boroughs; Barking & Dagenham, Greenwich, Hackney, Newham, Redbridge, Tower Hamlets and Waltham Forest.

 

‘Time to Shine’ provides young disabled people with the opportunity to participate in a wide variety of inclusive sports, our students undertook competitions in wheelchair basketball, tennis, wallball, sitting volleyball, table tennis, golf, athletics, cycling, archery, judo and swimming.

 

Our students had a wonderful time at the four day residential, for many the highlight of the event was the disco which took place on Wednesday 12 April, where all of the students were happy to show off their amazing dance moves. Thank you to Mr Alan Walsh for supervising this wonderful event for our students.
