Releasing balloons marked the start of an exciting Commonwealth Games sports event enjoyed by 300 school children.

Youngsters from Sutton Bridge Westmere Primary School were able to make friends with pupils from Holbeach St Marks and Gedney Drove End Primary School, in Lincolnshire.

Youngsters of all ages and from all three schools, which are federated, were mixed into teams to try out several of the sports which feature in the games.

Youngsters enjoyed singing and releasing balloons during an opening ceremony.

The teams were coached in hockey, rugby, tennis and athletics throughout the day.

The rugby session proved to be popular with youngsters, who enjoyed seeing how far they could throw the ball.

The day was rounded off with ice-cream and medal presentations.

Karyn Wiles is the headteacher of all three schools and was delighted with the event’s success.

She said: “We have extra funding to put on PE activities to get the children more active but also work together as part of a team.

“I had so many children come up to me at lunchtime to tell me they have made a new friend. The three schools as a whole do not often get together so it was lovely.

“The children were really wowed and excited by the opening ceremony.

“There were lots of smiles and happy children.”
