IN A race against the weather, St Mary’s Primary School beat the showers to enjoy an action-packed sports day.
Children from all the school years took part in a range of activities from traditional running and relay events to more novel sporting games including ‘horse and jockey’ and skipping races.
Many parents attended the event and enjoyed refreshments provided by the Friends of St Mary’s group.
Headteacher Anne Parr said: “We just about managed to avoid the showers - though we did have to persevere through one - and we did complete all the planned activities.
“A great time was had by all and every child at the school got the chance to take part in all the events.”
