Birmingham School Games 2017
In June, Jonathan attended the Birmingham School Games held in the Alexander Stadium in Birmingham. It was a great event in which neighbouring schools compete in athletic events. It also provides opportunities to get involved not just as participants, but also in other areas such as event organisation, officiating, volunteering and cultural activities.
The School Games is an exciting nationwide initiative designed to continue the legacy of 2012 through School Sport Competition.
Turkish Airlines have been the supporting partner to the Birmingham School Games since Summer 2015, and Jonathan had the privilege of opening the games and handing out medals with Turkish Airlines Birmingham General Manager. Mike Chamberlain was also there supporting the games as chief executive.
The children seemed to really enjoy themselves, and there was a huge number of developing talent! To find out more, visit the website on:
