Devon Ability Games
A group of children from Eden Park represented the school today at the Devon Ability Games. They had a great day trying different activities such as laser shooting, wheelchair basketball, taiko drumming and really cool skateboards. The event was opened by an international gymnastics coach and the children were entertained throughout the day by a very clever balloon modeller and entertainingly different. The children had a great day and represented the school well.
Today, the Eden Park netball teams took part in a tournament at Park School. They played really well against the other schools and the improvement as the morning went on was amazing. The children worked well together, were supportive of each other and became quicker at passing and better at marking.
