Nurs­ery chil­dren get taste for sport at Beech Hall

Macclesfield Express - - THE LAUGHING BADGER -

BEECH Hall School fol­lowed a suc­cess­ful Sports Day for its ju­niors, se­niors, in­fants and pre-school­ers last month with one for its nurs­ery chil­dren.

The sun was shin­ing at its bright­est, chil­dren were full of ex­cite­ment and laugh­ter, and par­ents, other fam­ily mem­bers and friends cheered on their lit­tle stars as well as en­joy­ing a range of ac­tiv­i­ties on of­fer.

Nurs­ery man­ager Su­san­nah Mid­dle­ton said: “The egg and spoon race was a par­tic­u­lar favourite among our nurs­ery pupils, although the high­light of the af­ter­noon, apart from the de­li­cious Granelli’s ice cream, was cool­ing off in the swimming pool.

“We hope ev­ery­one had a fan­tas­tic day!”

More than 70 chil­dren took part in the first Sports Day for ju­niors, se­niors, in­fants and pre-school­ers with pupils tak­ing part in 100m, 200m and 400m run­ning races, with se­niors only tak­ing on the chal­lenge of the 800m.

Other events in­cluded the high jump, long jump, shot putt, dis­cus and re­lay races.

Prizes for se­niors will be awarded at a prize giv­ing cer­e­mony in the new term.

The ju­nior prize giv­ing was held on the day and in­cluded awards which in­fant and ju­nior stu­dents have been work­ing to­wards for the school year.

Awards were pre­sented by Geral­dine Yan­dell, head­mistress, James Allen, se­nior head­mas­ter and Prof Michael Lewis, the school’s new pro­pri­etor.

The sports days at the school are the end part of many events and com­pe­ti­tions through­out the aca­demic year.

Points are awarded to each team, or ‘house’ over the year with Oak house an­nounced as the over­all win­ner for this year.
