The event, which is led by Warrington School Sports Partnership and LiveWire, takes place every year and was this year titled, ‘Gold Coast Games’, to build on the enthusiasm of the Commonwealth Games which was held in Australia earlier this year.
The event was held at Orford Jubilee Park on Monday 25 June, and the current heatwave provided perfect weather conditions, matching the weather on the Gold Coast.
Children from years three and six took part in variety of sports, including badminton, yoga, orienteering, tennis, and karate.
The aim of the event is to provide new and exciting opportunities for young people in Warrington to enjoy sport socially and competitively and have the opportunity to find out more about the fantastic range of sports and activities on offer across the borough.
The event is also a great opportunity for young leaders from local schools and colleges to hone their leadership skills by taking on event management roles.
Vikki Roberts, PE and School Sport Officer at LiveWire, said: “It was fantastic to see the Borough’s young people coming together, getting active, trying new sporting activities and forming bonds with each other.
“This event is a fixture in Warrington’s annual school sports calendar, with children from primary schools across the town looking forward to it each year. And this year the weather was definitely on our side, with near perfect conditions for the event.”
