Children take on the challenge of competing in cross-country event
- Credit: Submitted
Budding Mo Farahs were on display at a local primary school last month, as cross country talent competed against one another in an inter-school competition.
On November 25, Heartsease Primary Academy played host to a cluster cross country event, welcoming pupils from neighbouring schools to compete.
The event saws pupils between year three and year six from Heartsease Primary Academy, Lionwood Junior School, Magdalen Gates Primary School, George White Junior School, Catton Grove and Angel Road Junior School take part.
Tom Stansfield, P.E. co-ordinator of Heartsease Primary Academy, said: 'It was an excellent afternoon which enabled the children to have a holistic approach to sporting events, as they were able to compete in their race as well as then being able to support their other team members when they weren't racing.
'Everybody was a credit to their school and the event ran very smoothly. Louise Johnson from Heartsease Primary did a wonderful job in marking out the courses and a huge thank you to the Friends of Heartsease Primary for braving the cold to marshal the course, along with some year six children.
