Borough kids take part in East London Panathlon

Students from Tower Hamlets put in a great performance to finish fourth in the plate tournament at the East London Panathlon finals.

The borough, represented by students from Phoenix and Beatrice Tate Schools, took part in the competition for disabled schoolchildren that featured six events.

Tower Hamlets came away with two medals after securing silver in boccia and bronze in table cricket.

They combined those results with fourth place in the kurling, polybat, field athletics and athletics relays in the tournament that also featured Newham, Havering and Waltham Forest.

Beatrice Tate student Niamh Austin said she was overjoyed to have taken part in the event,

“I enjoy Panathlon. It’s great. I get to have a good time with everyone,” said Austin.

“I earned this medal playing shot putt. I’m happy. I’m going to take it home. I’m so proud.”

Tess Rendroth, teacher at Beatrice Tate, praised the competition for the skills it teaches the competitors.

“We really like Panathlon and our kids really like it because they get to work as a team and across key stages,” said Rendroth.

“We practice in school and then they get to come to an environment like this and achieve success and share that success with each other.

“We’re assured they are going to have a good time and it’s going to be a successful day. They’re keeping fit, they’re being healthy and they’re having fun in a safe and positive environment.”

For the past six months, employers and employees have been adapting to ways of working from home. The green light has now been given to many people to go back to offices safely. From flexible hours and staggered starting times to deep cleaning, we’re getting ready for new ways of working.

School’s in for summer – and beyond – with health experts agreeing that pupils safely returning to their studies is “positively” the right thing to do. It’s vital for all children’s welfare, not just in terms of students’ future education but also mental and physical well-being, as well as social interaction of classmates.

The NHS Test and Trace system provides protection for family, friends, colleagues and the community, and is here to keep all of us safe and allow us to enjoy summer safely. We take a look at how the system is working and talk to one member of the thousands of team members about her experiences.
