The AstroTurf facility at St Joseph’s School, Launceston came alive on Thursday 22nd March as the school played host to a wonderful selection of happy children from Otterham Primary, South Petherwin Primary & St Stephen’s Primary to participate in the inaugural St Joseph’s School Multi-Skills Festival.
A whole host of activities were arranged to test the pupils’ skills of target practice, balance, hand-eye coordination and much, much more. Children from Years 1 & 2 joined together with the main aim being to have fun!
Pupils from Year 6 took the lead to demonstrate to the younger children and all really rose to the challenge – staff were really impressed with their maturity and ability to take a leading role. The teams rotated between different activity stations and the Year 6 students encouraged them to try out the different sporting activities.
It was a superb morning and our thanks go to Mr Cardoo for organising a fantastic event – we can’t wait to host next year’s multi-skills, where we hope even more local schools are able to take part.
