Youngsters receive awards for school sport achievements


YOUNGSTERS from 29 Warrington primary schools and Priestley College have received their National School Games Mark for their achievements in school sport and PE.
The awards were presented by Warrington School Sport Partnership at the Halliwell Jones Stadium.
The School Games Mark was in its sixth year at the end of the academic year and has continued to reward schools and other educational establishments for their commitment to and development of competition, school sport and physical education.
