Here's what people had to say about the games:
Ryan Barnes, Head of Health Faculty at Red Moor Special School said: "As a brand-new school, taking part in our very first Cornwall School Games it was a great honour and was excellently received. At this time, it is vital to be active and safely engage in sporting activities to maintain your physical and mental health. The Virtual Cornwall School Games activities allowed all students to participant and connect as a community while representing the school."
Participant Sienna Simmonds, Age 5 from Wadebridge Primary Academy said: "My favourite challenge was throwing the bean bag on the hopscotch (Throw Mr Fox) because I got to do a lot of throwing and hopping. The Cornwall School Games are fun! I liked it because got to see my friends because my teacher did live lessons for us to know what to do!"
Stay tuned for more information on the next Virtual Cornwall School Games.
