Today, six schools from across the Dawlish Learning Partnership gathered together at St Luke’s Science and Sports College in Exeter for the annual DLP Key Stage 2 Athletics tournament.
Each school sent along a team of two girls and two boys from each year group in years 3,4 & 5 to take part.
The children competed in a number of activities including sprinting, long jump, speed bounce, skipping, vortex howler and target practice and a relay race, with all the children showing some fantastic skills as well as good sportsmanship.
All the children who took part from Kenn, Kenton and Westcliff, Exminster, Cockwood & Starcross Primary Schools received a certificate, medals were presented to the top performing boy and girl in each year group and bronze and silver medals were awarded to the second and third placed schools.
After all the points were totalled at the end of an energetic morning the winning team was announced ….. Kenn Primary School, who for the second year running, were presented with gold medals and the DLP Athletics Shield.
Many thanks to St Luke’s College staff and student leaders for hosting the day and for coming in on their day off, due to a teachers strike, to ensure this event still went ahead. Thanks also to all the parents and carers who helped with transport and came along to support their children and school.
Well done to all the children who took part!
