More than 200 young people from across Cumbria had fun in the sun taking part in a day of outdoor events.

Year Four children from across the eight primary schools of Cumbria Education Trust (CET) enjoyed the Be The Best You Can Be Sports Day at Cumbria Sports Academy at the Copeland Stadium in Whitehaven.

They took part in a range of activities including a mini-Olympics, tag rugby and dance.

Sports Leaders and Student Ambassadors from across CET’s three secondary schools led the events, supporting and encouraging the younger participants throughout the day.

Nic Tweddle, CET Assistant Headteacher and Student Events Lead, said: “It was fantastic to have so many young people from across all of our CET schools collaborating and coming together ‘As One’, enjoying the West Cumbrian sunshine and being a part of such a positive event.

“All of our Year Fours had huge smiles on their faces throughout the day, displayed exemplary behaviour and were energetic and enthusiastic. Both the participants and those leading were fantastic ambassadors for CET throughout the day.

“Thanks must also go to our staff for making enriching and memorable events such as this possible for our students.”

The Year Four event followed similar cross-trust celebrations for Years Two and Six. The former visited Workington Academy in February for a multi sports festival and the latter went to William Howard School in Brampton in November for a netball festival.

Next year the initiative will be extended to all primary age groups.

The primary schools taking part were Longtown; Caldew Lea, Newtown and Yewdale in Carlisle, Tebay and Yanwath in Eden, Northside in Workington and Hensingham in Whitehaven.

Sports Leaders and Student Ambassadors were from William Howard, Workington Academy and The Whitehaven Academy.
