DATE: 16th Nov 2016
VENUE: Woodkirk Academy
SCHOOLS ATTENDED: Birchfield, Blackgates, East Ardsley & Westerton Primary
Woodkirk Primary PE Project hosted its annual 'Gifted and Talented Pentathlon' for the first time on its new 4G facility. Birchfield, Blackgates, East Ardsley and Westerton attended the event bringing with them identified talented primary school performers, of both genders, in PE. The 34 primary school students participated in training sessions, lead by Woodkirk's Leadership Academy students, consisting of football, tri-golf, athletics and table tennis. Upon evaluation students identified students to perform in afternoon challenges, where two students from each school competed against others in each of the aforementioned disciplines. To round the day and the fifth event off, students competed in a 'team sprint challenge' using speed gates to calculate the quickest overall school. All in all, a great day for all despite Novembers challenging weather conditions. A big thank you as always to Woodkirk Academy's Sports Leaders and those primary schools that attended.
