Pupils from twenty two primary schools from across the region
took part in this year's Bolton School Sports Festival. The annual
event, now in its eighth year, saw teams from Bolton and further
afield including Preston, Wigan and North Manchester, competing in
a variety of sporting challenges.
Pupils took part in a wide range of events to test their
sporting skills, including a rugby challenge and penalty shoot-out
as well as having their golf, hockey, tennis, athletics and cricket
skills tested. Schools picked up points in each event they took
part in resulting in an overall Festival Winner. This year the
overall winner was St Matthew's Primary with the runner up places
going to St Peter's in Farnworth and Markland Hill CPS. Every child
that took part received a medal.
The event was organised by Mr James Rich, Director of Admissions
at Bolton School Boys' Division. He said: "The event has once again
been a great success and it was fantastic to see so many primary
school pupils enjoying themselves in spite of the changeable
weather! All the schools that took part demonstrated real
sportsmanship and team work as they made use of the excellent
resources and facilities at the School."
