A summer of sport

Several ARK schools saw off the school year with sporting events featuring 100m sprints, long jumps, sack races and even a tug of war.

Students, staff and parents have been getting involved in all kinds of activities over the last few weeks. From competitive races, to trying new activities and working together with other ARK schools, we have seen it all.

Here’s our round up of all the sports day action:

Over 700 students from eight ARK primary schools came together for a huge primary sports day. Pupils had taster sessions with professional athletes and coaches in sports including handball, athletics, netball and Taekwondo.

It’s Sports Day here @ARKBolingbroke. Every pupil has the opportunity to test their athletic skills.
