Next week (June 20th – June 25th) is officially National School Sport Week 2021, but what is NSSW?
This event was started by Youth Sport Trust back in 2008 and has continued to run annually. The annual National School Sport Week campaign takes place in the last week of June every year to celebrate the important role of Physical Education and school sport in enhancing young people’s wellbeing.
How can you get involved?
With schools being back this year you can be involved in NSSW by choosing a sport, virtual competition or activity to take part in and sharing your schools/pupils experiences via social media and tagging Youth Sport Trust, ManchesterSchoolsPE and use the hashtag #NSSW2021.
