Welcome to the first ever Cornwall Virtual School Games! #CornwallVSG2020 sponsored by the University of Exeter.

Saltash PE department are excited to introduce this year’s Games… with a twist! Although we won’t be going to Poltair School to celebrate the amazing sporting achievements of Cornwall’s young people, we will be coming together to get active, focus on well-being and take on some active challenges! The best part? Everyone can get involved!

This will be a week of sports based physical activity challenges everyone can get involved in. The challenges have adaptations to suit all abilities, making them inclusive for all. If you follow us on Twitter and Instagram you would have seen a selection of challenges released for you to practice, these include:

  • Monday 22nd – Athletics
  • Tuesday 23rd – Bowls/Boccia
  • Wednesday 24th – Gymnastics/ Dance
  • Thursday 25th – Ball Sports
  • Friday 26th – Tennis

As well as the above, there will also be a separate task running throughout the whole week called ‘Making up the Miles’. This will involve walking, running, cycling, skating or scooting to collect as many miles in distance as you can.

All students will be sent all the information they need on Show My Homework, Each day’s challenges will begin at 10am, Students must submit their results by 9am the following day on the specific day’s link, with exception of Tennis which is 4pm on Friday. Making Up The Miles results should be submitted daily.

Any results that are not submitted on the correct day or after the closing deadline will not count.
