Caius College – PHG

The first ever College version of the PowerHouseGames was hosted at the University of Cambridge Sports Centre last Friday in conjunction with Gonville & Caius College.

The event, which had been suggested by two second-year undergraduate students Luke Cavanaugh and Alex Parton, featured over 20 students from the College along with 14 pupils from Castle Special School and 12 from Quilters Junior School. Though smaller than some of the previous versions, the format helped integrate the teams even more thoroughly and encouraged some of the SEN pupils to join in faster.

Michael Wade, the award-winning Head Teacher from Quilters was thrilled with the event, saying “They loved it. It was so good for them to visit the University Sports Centre and to meet the students. Maybe their horizons will be lifted.”

The event included goalball, new age curling, boccia, walking football, sitting netball and touch rugby. Hilary Foord, the Captain of the University Rugby League Team volunteered to run the touch rugby having been involved in the previous PowerHouseGames.

The organisers of their event passed on their thanks to all of the volunteers who helped facilitate the day and also to Gonville and Caius College who supported Alex and Luke with a financial contribution to help put the Games on.
