YEAR 7 students buddied up with Year 6 pupils on their induction day to take part in a range of activities to help celebrate school PE and sport as part of National School Sports Week.
The event, held at Cheshire Oaks High School, included cycling, fencing, self-defence, wheelchair basketball and skipping workshops as well as the Challenge Kelly 400m run where participants could attempt to emulate double Olympic gold medallist Dame Kelly Holmes.
The day was supported by the Youth Sport Trust, David Lloyd, MEND and Asda.
School sports co-ordinator Jonathan King said: “The day was a lot of fun and offered students the opportunity to try out many different physical activities.
“I was pleased with the Year 7 pupils who helped out those who will be coming here in September.”
