School to host ‘Jubilympics’

Have your say

OLYMPIC and Jubilee events are being held at a Sheffield school over the coming week.

Ridgeway Primary School, Ridgeway, is hosting a sports day on Tuesday afternoon, where there will be an Olympic-style opening ceremony.

Children will then compete against each other in various events for gold, silver and bronze medals.

On Friday, the school is hosting special a ‘Jubilympics’ day.

Pupils are being asked to turn up dressed as kings and queens and, at lunch time, there will be a Jubilee Party for all 195 of the youngsters.

In the afternoon, there will be a Diamond Jubilee commemorative balloon race, with the release of patriotic-coloured red, white and blue balloons – one for every pupil at the school.

The balloon race will be followed by an afternoon fair, with a range of stalls and entertainment on offer – which is open for pupils’ parents and families to attend.
