On Your Marks!
More than 130 young athletes from local primary schools took part in the Year 5 & 6 Sports Hall Athletics Festival at Paignton Academy, followed by another 60+ at the Year 3 & 4 Festival the following week.
The children competed in 6 disciplines, including sprints, team obstacle races, vortex javelin, long jump, chest push and speed bounce. The event was focused on personal bests and there were tremendous performances from children from all of the schools.
The two festivals were led by top sports leaders from Paignton Academy. They organised, coached and kept accurate records of all of the performances, which have been shared with the schools that took part.
The children really enjoyed the experience and showed outstanding focus and determination throughout.
