From after half-term, all schools participating in Partnership competitions will compete as Olympic & Paralympic countries.
These were all selected at random and change each academic year. To view which countries your school has been allocated, view the resource attached to this article.
So, the next time we hold a football festival, maybe it will be Ethiopia v's Romania, or Ghana v's USA?
This is the first change to the sporting landscape, introduced by the Partnership.
The Partnership has now ordered 56 national flags (1 for each school each year) and these will be delivered to schools after half-term.
More changes to follow.
