Darnall Sports Day

Part of the DCLG funded community development work undertaken between 2015 and 2017, this project brought together young people from all 6 local schools, 5 primary and one secondary, for a sports day at a professional athletics track in the Darnall community. Held in July 2016 and July 2017, the schools came together for the first time with different school populations.  For some pupils it was the first time they had met children from different backgrounds. The children were year 5 and year 6, led by team leaders from Y10 and Y11. The teams were mixed across schools, created their own team name and flag, and then spent the morning going around the 16 stations to collect points. The Lord Mayor came to present the prizes after a picnic lunch in the stands.
