Celebrating the power of sport to bring people together

Right now, young people are missing their friends and missing the sense of connection they get from enjoying sport and play. Millions of young people will be without a school sports day this summer. This year we want to unite the whole country – families, schools, sport and businesses –in a celebration of the power of sport to bring people together to capture the enjoyment, challenge and camaraderie they are missing out on.

Each day, will give you a different challenge to do either on your own or with your family. You can choose the level of challenge that you want to do. We want you to challenge yourself in the activity and then capture yourself doing the activity. Share your videos or images on the school Twitter page @stannespri and use the hashtags #NSSWtogether. We will link to the School Games Values for you to consider how you live out this value in your physical activity and in your daily life. We will ask you to consider 5 well-being goals while you do the activities.
