Get Set to be a Paralympic Champion is an exciting competition for schools, which offers young people the chance to win a film workshop with a ParalympicsGB athlete by shining a spotlight on the Paralympic Movement and Values and challenging perceptions of disabled people.
Their latest winning school was at Helme CE (VA) Junior & Infant School, whose Class 5 pupils had the opportunity to meet and interview ParalympicsGB athlete, Nathan Stephens for their film.
The theme of the film was ‘Using the Paralympic Values’. The pupils were split into two film teams and truly immersed themselves in their roles! They interviewed other school children and teachers and chatted with Nathan about his career, how he applies the Paralympic Values to his everyday life and how the Values have made a difference.
"The children doing the filming had such an amazing day - they were all buzzing as they left school. The rest of the school too, who were asked to be interviewed by the team were equally as chuffed! Nathan was great with the children. I really cannot put into words the impact that winning this workshop has had on our small school. We are made to feel 'big' thanks to all of your work.” Sam Brian, Class teacher, Helme CE (VA) Junior & Infant School
There are a series of workshops on offer and the next deadlines for entries are 29 April and 3 June.
