The sun shone and the children ran their hearts out doing themselves and their school very proud. We had numerous medal winners and great fun on the day. It was fantastic to see all the children supporting each other and shouting each other on. A special mention has to go to the girls from Fifth and Sixth Class who were a great help with the younger children. Well done everyone!
