The GSLAs Sports Development Team delivered two workshops as part of the Department of Educations Super Inset Sessions. Sports Development Officer (Actg) Liam Payas supported by Benji Borastero led workshops under the title of:
Should everyone be a winner in sport?
The workshops aimed at sports orientated people and those who work with children with Special Educational Needs focused amongst other things on the importance of exercise and how to encourage and involve students (participants, organisers, officials), ways of supporting students by way of grouping, rule changes and focus of the session, discussions around the importance of resilience, competition and values and fun in sport (finding the right moment and place for them).
The idea was to provoke discussions about competition and where it sits in relation to activities, development work and the school setting also. Feedback has been excellent with excellent debates taking place
