Macclesfield Express - - THE LAUGHING BADGER -

●● THE sun made a welcome ap­pear­ance for Beech Hall School’s sports day.

Field events at Mac­cles­field ath­let­ics track were fol­lowed by pic­nics on the lawn back at the school, with par­ents and pupils soak­ing up the rays.

In the af­ter­noon, there was a wet­ter kind of com­pe­ti­tion in the pool.

The school would like to thank the sports depart­ment, and Mrs Farmer and Mr Davies in par­tic­u­lar, for the smooth run­ning of the day.

They would also like to con­grat­u­late all those who won prizes and suc­ceeded in com­plet­ing races on dry land and in the wa­ter.

Praise was also given to pupils who ‘jumped far­ther and higher’, work­ing to­gether to achieve.

Mr James Allen, se­nior head­mas­ter, said: “Sport and phys­i­cal ac­tiv­ity, both par­tic­i­pa­tory and com­pet­i­tive, have so much to of­fer, sup­port and un­der­pin in terms of at­ti­tudes.

“Our pupils’ at­ti­tudes through­out the day are a credit to the man­ner in which they ap­proached and en­joyed the day – with com­mit­ment, col­lab­o­ra­tion and ca­ma­raderie.” ●● PUPILS at Marl­bor­ough Pri­mary School had a visit from an­i­ma­tion stars Wal­lace and Gromit who came to the school with pasta com­pany Pasta King.

The com­pany brought free sam­ples for the chil­dren to try with a view to putting some on the school menu.

One Year 5 pupil, Dan, wrote to thank Pasta King for bring­ing the com­edy duo and the sam­ples.

To let Dan know how pleased they were to re­ceive his let­ter, Phillip Lit­tle, Pasta King’s area man­ager, came to Marl­bor­ough’s cel­e­bra­tion assem­bly to present Dan with a let­ter from Wal­lace and Gromit and a Shaun the Sheep DVD.

He even pre­sented the lucky young­ster with some Shaun the sheep pasta.
