Hundreds of Local Children Enjoy Sports Festival
Tuesday, 18 June 2013
Almost 300 pupils from twenty eight primary schools from across the region took part in the Bolton School Sports Festival. The annual event, now in its tenth year, saw teams from Bolton and further afield compete in a variety of sporting challenges.
Pupils took part in a wide range of events to test their sporting skills, including a rugby slalom and a football penalty shoot-out as well as undertaking hockey, tennis, athletics and cricket challenges. Schools picked up points as they took part in each event. The overall Festival Winner was Haslam Park Primary School with second place going to Gilnow Primary and third to St Osmund and Andrew’s Primary. Every child that took part received a medal and a certificate.
All the schools that took part demonstrated real sportsmanship and team work as they made use of the resources and facilities at the School.
The event is part of the series of annual events in different subjects that the School coordinates for primary school boys and girls, including festivals in Science, Maths, Languages and Technology.
