Aims of the project
Provide primary school children with the opportunity to compete in an organised sporting competition against other local schools. This encourages good links between the schools and a high quality track for the pupils to race on. The pupils experience a well organised event with junior and senior competitions for both boys and girls with all runners receiving prizes.
Background and goals
This has been established for the last 9 years. The main reason for setting up this project was to strengthen links between the College and the wider community.
We use 10 staff and 20 pupils for this event. The College grounds are used, together with the Stunt Pavilion which is used as a welcome area and spectator platform.
250 plus pupils take part in physical activity and the hope is to encourage a percentage to continue in this sport.
250 primary pupils aged between 8-11 years old, mixed gender.
Frequency and duration
Annual - 5 hours.
