With the London 2012 Olympic Games only weeks away, the Trust are this year providing the opportunity for primary schools within Barnsley to hold their Olympic Themed Sports Day at Oakwell Stadium. The Sports Day is planned, organised and delivered by Trust Coaches and Football Development Squad, giving school staff and teachers a stress-free day to support and take in the atmosphere!
The Sports Day is adaptable to all year groups and allows each pupil to take part in 8 events including sprint race, hurdles race, long distance race, relay race, long jump, triple jump, javelin and shot putt. Before the day the pupils will be divided into 8 nations and asked to wear the colours of their nation as well as bringing banners and flags.
Throughout the day the pupils will earn points for their nation by winning Bronze, Silver & Gold medals in each event. At the end of the day all points will be added up and Bronze, Silver & Gold certificates will be given to the nations finishing 3rd, 2nd and 1st. Parents are invited to attend to support their children and add to the atmosphere.
Already this year Cherry Dale and Jump Primary have enjoyed their Olympic Sports Day at Barnsley Football Club and Carlton, Wilthorpe, Doncaster Road, St. Helen’s, Hunningley and The Edmunds Primary Schools are looking forward to theirs over the coming weeks.
