Mav­is­bank School young­sters put the world’s finest ath­letes in the shade dur­ing a su­perla­tive sports day.

Room two pupils held the event and in­vited along par­ents, grand­par­ents and chil­dren from fel­low Air­drie school Golfhill Pri­mary.

Com­peti­tors were put through their paces in a se­ries of fab­u­lously fun events, with re­lay and par­ents’ three-legged races and the Boc­cia Chal­lenge – where skit­tles had to be knocked over – prov­ing par­tic­u­larly pop­u­lar.

Pupils also put the pedal to the me­tal dur­ing a “big bike race” and points were awarded for ev­ery sport­ing chal­lenge.

Room one came out on top in a hard-fought com­pe­ti­tion and will now get to keep the pres­ti­gious sports day tro­phy for the next year.

A spokesper­son for the school said: “Ev­ery child in­volved re­ceived a medal and the stan­dard of fit­ness and per­for­mance on show were first rate.

“Sport is a very im­por­tant thing for the school, es­pe­cially for our pupils to get their PE en­ti­tle­ment.”
