ABOUT 200 pupils and their parents attended Sacred Heart Primary School’s sports day at Jubilee Park in Henley.

The day began with a series of fun events, including an obstacle course and a relay race in which the children were dressed as babies. The youngsters then divided into their three houses of Walsingham, Lourdes and Fatima to take part in a parade.

The main track and field competitions ranged from sprints to sack races and the long jump to shotput and javelin. For the final race, the children had to run and fill a bucket with water dyed their house’s colour.

The winner of each event scored points for their house and at the end of the afternoon, Walsingham came out top. Every child who took part was given a purple rosette. There were also races for parents. Headteacher Karen Edwards said: “Everyone agreed it was the best sports day we’ve had.

“The children were on a real high and they really ran to the best of their ability. It was competitive but fun.”
