Primary pupils from several schools across the Louth area enjoyed a day of mentoring by P.E. students at Louth Academy.
As part of their Sports Leaders qualification, Year 9 students acted as coaches for primary children from Years 5 and 6, with 180 children from the area's larger primaries competing in one session, and 150 children from the smaller schools in another.
Rob Colbert, Vice Principal of Louth Academy said: "The children took part in a wide variety of events, including an obstacle relay, one and two lap relays, 6 lap parrlauf, under/over relay, and a 4 x 1 lap relay. They had to do a chest push (ball), standing long jump, standing triple jump, vertical jump, soft javelin and speed bounce. All these events are fast paced and good fun for the young pupils, who really enjoyed themselves and learned some new skills along the way.
St Michael's won the larger schools' event and Grasby All Saint's Primary pupils were victorious in the smaller school'’ event.
We were delighted to welcome back our former pupil Caitlin Bower for the morning (Wednesday 28th June 2017).
Caitlin recently represented the GB team in the age 20 - 24 group in the Triathlon Sprint in Dusseldorf. She brought along her bikes and equipment to show and inspire our year 5 and 6's.
