Local Primaries Get Active at Bolton School
Thursday, 21 June 2012
Pupils from 14 primary schools from across the region took part in this year's Bolton School Sports Festival. The annual event, now in its ninth year, saw teams 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 Thomas Chequerbent with the runner up places going to Ladybridge and Claypool. Every child that took part received a medal.
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.
