Three Commonwealth Games athletes have helped launch the School Games’ role in the United by Birmingham 2022 programme by hosting a nationally available Active Assembly at St Margaret’s Primary School in Anfield. The School Games is a programme that aims to inspire young people to be physically active for life through positive experiences of daily activity and competition, in order to support their wider development. The School Games will be delivering the United by Birmingham 2022’s mission to improve the health and wellbeing of young people across the country, particularly those who need it most, using inspiration from the Birmingham 2022 Commonwealth Games. At the launch, Year 5 and 6 children at St Margaret’s took part in fun physical activity, led by two former Commonwealth Games athletes, gymnast Steve Frew and badminton player Jenny Wallwork. Mark Griffiths, headteacher at St Margaret’s Anfield C of E Primary School, said: “We were delighted to be asked to host the School Games Active Assembly. As a school we value the impact PE and sport can have on the mental and physical well-being of our children.”
