Meath Local Sports Partnership organises school sports day training workshops for primary schools in the county. A common issue many schools encounter is in relation to organising the school sports day. To assist schools in this regard, Meath LSP has developed a school sports day training pack that consists of a guidebook, training workshop and resource cards.
Sports Days are one of the most eagerly awaited days in the school calendar. It is a time for all children to participate in different sporting events for fun and enjoyment. Everyone has their own particular favourite event and once the date has been set then training commences in the playground. In this time prior to the big day a lot of new skills can be introduced and learned by children of all ages
The school sports day training involves a practical session. The training and accompanying guidebook is designed to equip the participant with the knowledge and skills required to deliver a sports day that is more accessible, easily organised, safe, successful and most importantly fun.
Training is open to teachers, special needs assistants and parents from primary schools in Meath. To date, almost 200 representatives from schools around the county have availed of school sports day training.
Training for 2019 took place on Tuesday 21st May in St. Stephen’s NS, Johnstown, Navan.
