'Everyone has had a fabulous day at Scole Primary. With skateboarding being added to the sports at the 2020 Tokyo Olympics we thought this was an excellent way to introduce the children to this exciting and exhilarating sport. We've already had a Bhangra dance day, karate taster session and after school clubs including archery, fencing, lacrosse and street dance this year.'
