Sporting Success at Pegasus

In June Pegasus School took part in National Sports Week ,as championed by the Youth Sport Trust.

Derby County Community Trust visited the school on Monday, the school held their sports day on the Tuesday and the schools Occupational Therapy team led a gymnastics session Wednesday and young people enjoyed professional Boccia coaching on Thursday.

The week ended with a visit from Cycle Derby on the Friday. The staff worked really hard to help all the young people engage and take part. We are using the experience to join a community cycling club and to start playing Boccia, which is a new sport for Pegasus. (if successful in taking off they hope to set up a team and challenge other schools to friendly Boccia matches).
