Academies do battle in city

Have your say

STUDENTS from 10 academies met in Sheffield for the third of five sporting events as part of the E-ACT Olympic Games.

E-ACT is the organisation which sponsors Parkwood Academy at Shirecliffe, one of the schools which was taking part at the English Institute of Sport.

A table tennis event saw 250 students compete in doubles matches across 16 tables, competing for the E-ACT Olympic Games Shield.

Each academy also hosted a stand featuring a country – displaying music, food, and traditional dress.
