Hampshire Olympic Conference 2011 - Wednesday 22nd June (Archive)

The Rose Bowl, Southampton

  • As the excitement mounts in respect of the London Olympics, so do the questions as to how can we use this once in a lifetime opportunity to create a legacy within our schools.

    The Hampshire 2012 Olympic Conference held on June 22nd at the Rose Bowl looked at this question and that of how can we use the Games to inspire young people and to impact on learning across the curriculum.

    Steve Backley, OBE, Olympic Medalist and former World Record Holder, opened the event and gave an inspiring and illuminating talk on his career which set the tone for our 160 teachers and head teachers from across the curriculum and county to enjoy a valuable, practical and enjoyable day gaining lots of ideas to take back into their schools.

    Feedback from this year’s conference was extremely positive – delegates told us it was ‘the best Conference yet’ and ‘a great day full of inspiration and challenge’. Without exception the Conference met the particular needs of every delegate – and positively inspired them all to take action when back at their school. Indeed 97% rated it ‘very good’ and ‘excellent’ in respect to these questions.
