There was an important message behind King’s Ely Junior’s annual PowerHouse Games.
The games are the idea of John Willis, founder of the charity Power2Inspire, whose daughter was in King’s Ely Senior until last year.
He said: “Through my own experiences of trying sports in an inclusive way that overcomes different levels of ability and disability, I wanted school children to have the same opportunities.
“The PowerHouse Games are mini sports days using adapted and inclusive games and sports activities. The initiative is designed to help children learn to challenge their assumptions, respect people’s differences and explore their understanding of what they can do.
“At the same time, the children benefit from the positive physical and social experience
