Rachel Bown our Inclusive Sports and Exercise Co-ordinator at the college received an award from Triathlon England South West: ‘Members Achievement Award’. This award is in recognition of the Wiltshire Inclusive Triathlon that Rachel designed for children across Wiltshire with additional needs. It involved a unique format that could include any young person of any age with any physical or learning difficulty.
72 SEND pupils experienced their first triathlon, Sports Leaders from Fairfield Farm College, Lavington School & Clarendon School officiated & supported them. Thank you to the ‘Tri 2 Invest South West’ program for funding the event. Rachel is hoping to make the Wilts Inclusive Triathlon sustainable by holding an annual fund raising event. This is going to start with a Sports Table Top Sale- watch out for details in the New Year. Rachel says “All children whatever their ability deserve a chance & I will continue to ensure this happens!”
