ABOUT COLMERS SGO AREA (MR RICKARD)

I am based at Colmers School & Sixth Form College in Rednal, and I am responsible for providing sport, physical activity and leadership opportunities for primary and secondary aged young people in 32 schools across the south-west of the City of Birmingham.

I work in partnership with primary, secondary and special schools, as well as local clubs and organisations, to ensure that we can provide a range of activities and opportunities that engage all young people.

Many of these opportunities allow young people to participate and compete with and against other schools in the local area (Colmers Area), with the opportunity to progress through to the Birmingham School Games City Finals, where schools from across the whole City of Birmingham (all 11 SGO areas) are invited.

Of course, we are currently living in a very different world, due to the ongoing coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak, and therefore the School Games offer and opportunities look and feel a little different at the moment.

My (and other SGOs) main aim at the present time is to ensure that all young people (and their families) are able to keep active in the safety of their own homes (or in their schools if they are still attending). Therefore, I will be using this page to keep you updated on lots of different, fun and exciting activities and challenges that you can complete at home with your family.
