Alderley Edge Community Primary School again held their popular Sports Week recently during which children across all age groups were given the opportunity to try both some traditional sports and activities to more unusual ones.
The activities included everything from boxercise, dance, tag rugby, tennis and hockey to visits to the indoor BMX centre at the Manchester Velodrome and the Chill Factor at Trafford Park.
Inspired by the activities the children tried during the week, many families have used this initiative to take up new sports either just for their children or the family as a whole.
Headteacher Chris Perry said "I was extremely proud of this event as it certainly allows our children to have access to activities they don't normally access. We are keen to get children participating in sports and physical activity and some traditional sports like football don't always suit all children. So, these opportunities are an open door for many.
"I know this works as earlier this year we gave our children opportunities to try sports like judo and squash over several weeks and I am aware of several children who took up one or both of these sports as a result."
