Brief review of the Trevictus Games
Cornwall Cricket involved in Trevictus Games
The CCB were invited to attend the Trevictus Games to introduce children from KS2 children with additional learning needs to Table Cricket.
The four schools Penryn, Falmouth, Tregolls and Trevithick attended with approx 50 children in total with half a dozen in wheelchairs, they had a fantastic time! Many playing Table Cricket for the first time, this game is totally inclusive and allowed all the children to participate in the game together. Many of the staff where amazed as the children not only played but run the game, encouraging and cheering each other as the played.
