WORLD CUP FROM RUSSIA, TRACK STARS FROM HYDE!

WORLD CUP FROM RUSSIA, TRACK STARS FROM HYDE!

Although we are all presently gripped with watching ‘The World Cup’ soccer tournaments in Russia, locally, several Primary Schools recognise that although sporting events may vary in size; some involving professionals whilst others are competed in by young amateurs and children; the one thing they all have in common is the sharing of passion and love for different sporting activities.

From local leagues and inter-schools competitions to mega events such as the Olympics and the World Cup, sport, at all levels has the power to bring people together for a common aim or purpose.

One such event was the recent Relays Tournament for Hyde School Sports, which was held at Hyde Community College for year 3 and 4 Primary pupils.

Eight schools from across the region took part, meaning 64 children were lighting up the track in 6 different races; all trying to beat the rest!

The eventual winners were Gee Cross, who won on points and took home the trophy after winning the most races.

A really big ‘thank you’ to the five Sports Leaders from Hyde Community College, who assisted with the competition which was thoroughly enjoyed by supporters and children alike!
