The enthusiasm, energy and motivation of the children from St. Martins Primary School was palpable whilst filming the Guernsey Mobility Let’s Go mini Olympics this month. The group has been established for a few years now and offers disabled people the chance to enjoy sport and physical activity. The volunteers of the group support the participants to enjoy the activities available. More recently they have helped the school children to refine their ideas on how the games and physical activities can be adapted to support the adults with various additional needs. We visited the group back in November and caught a glimpse of the enthusiasm and energy of the school children in one class. Every term the children attending have been rotated, so enabling three different classes to work with the group of adults. These Olympics invited children from the whole school year to organise games and participate in a mini competition where everyone was a winner. Even our Director walked away with a medal!

We minimised our footprint on the day as we knew we had to stay mobile. So we ensured our memory cards were emptied, batteries were charged and tripod was level to ensure our single camera setup could capture all the action that took place over the three courts hired out at Beau Sejour Leisure Centre. The edit focused on the comments from those we interviewed on the day supplemented by cut-aways to illustrate the activities that were undertaken. We think the video speaks for itself and doesn’t need any further explanation.

Well done to everyone involved in Guernsey Mobility Lets Go, you’re an inspiration.
