The highlight of my week was definitely on Tuesday morning when I had the privilege once again to visit the Stoke Mandeville National Stadium, home of the very first Paralympic Games in 1948 to see our superb BASE students competing in the WheelPower National Junior Games.
All the students clearly loved taking part in the varied sporting activities and using all the state of the art equipment, but they also clearly gained a huge amount from being with each other and the staff in the residential context; eating and sleeping together and building up those all-important bonds of trust when you live together as a family.
As always our students were fantastic ambassador s for our school. I would like to congratulate all of them who participated, many of them rising to new challenges in a whole range of sports and achieving personal bests in the highly competitive events.
I would also like to thank all the dedicated staff who went to look after them and support them throughout the week.
