30 years of having a go at helping others

Have your say

Oundle School’s ‘Have a Go Day’ (HAGD) has been running for over 30 years and has established itself as a favourite date in the calendars of special needs clubs and schools. On September 27, more than 200 visitors to the school, hosted by over 150 pupils, took part in various activities including swimming, badminton, basketball, archery, football, indoor rowing, crazy golf, face painting, boccia, yoga, music and art activities as well as enjoying traction engine rides around the school’s grounds.

Liz Dillarstone, Head of Community Action at Oundle School, said: “HAGD is a really encouraging environment in which visitors with special needs can try their hand at new sports and activities in a safe and familiar environment. We hope that they came away with smiles on their faces.”
