Sidbury primary pupils in Ability Counts festival
Sporting chance for 60 youngsters at Honiton Community College
FOUR pupils from Sidmouth Primary have taken part in an Ability Counts Festival at Honiton Commnity College.
Sky, Owen, Courtney and Jake were among 60 youngsters from primary schools in East Devon, who spent over two hours trying seven different sports.
They enjoyed playing rackets sports, ball sports, aerobics, and learnt trampoline skills.
School sports coordinator at Honiton, R Gillon, said: “The festival was aimed at primary students in Years Three to Six who have missed sporting opportunities in their primary schools due to numeracy and literacy catch-up work and to give these students a chance to try some sports which would ignite their passion for sport.”
