This year’s Bolton School Games’ Health and Wellbeing Conference was hosted at Bolton School. The opening address was given by former World Champion and 10 times British Champion inline skater Jenna Downing, who by telling her own story of never giving up inspired the audience of 80 delegates from local primary schools. Jenna then went on to deliver one of several workshops, focussing on Active Play Through Storytelling supported by Disney and the FA. There was also an Imoves Health and Wellbeing Workshop, which aimed to promote active learning, a session dedicated to inspiring the younger generation to take part in crown green bowling and a ‘Speedstacks’ session for Primary PE leads.

In between the workshops and seminars, attendees networked in the ‘marketplace’ where over 20 exhibitors displayed their offers, including provision in dance, football, gymnastics, orienteering, biking, tennis and martial arts.
