Norbreck Primary Academy are worthy winners of the inaugural Community Roadshow, scoring a total of 120 points when Blackpool F.C Community Trust came to the school with their inflatable goal. The Roadshow took place throughout the Autumn term, travelling across the town of Blackpool visiting various primary schools.
Two pupils in each year group from Years 1-6 took part, all aiming to amass as many points as possible to receive the prize of £500 of P.E equipment for the school. Points were scored by kicking a football into an inflatable goal with four circular targets, with each target worth a different number of points. The Roadshow visited 11 schools, and it was Norbreck Primary who came out on top.
Norbreck Primary Academy Headteacher Karen McCarter is delighted with the schools Roadshow success, and the partnership work that takes place between the school and the Community Trust. “We are delighted to have won the competition and are very grateful for all the equipment received. Massive thanks to Chris and his team for setting up and organising the Roadshow and to the children for scoring the goals. Our partnership work with the Community Trust goes from strength to strength and our children and staff benefit so much from the high level of expertise provided. They offer so many sporting opportunities for our children of all ages.”
Chris Debar, Senior Physical Education Officer for the Community Trust, said “Our first Community Roadshow has been a real success, with the schools and pupils really taking to it. This has been a great opportunity to showcase our projects in local schools and has been fantastic to be able to host community events within the school. We’ll be aiming to expand this within the next academic year and reach more schools and pupils.”
The next Community Roadshow will take place during the Autumn 1 term in the 2017-2018 academic year, and schools can book their slots now.
