Schoolkids from across Brent whacked cricket balls, ran relay races and took part in hockey as part of a sports day.

More than 100 Year 4 and Year 5 pupils took part in the ASDA Active Sports Day in Edgware.

Children from St Robert Southwell Catholic Primary School in Slough Lane, Kingsbury; Roe Green Junior Primary School in Princes Avenue, Kingsbury; Anson Primary School in Anson Road, Cricklewood; St Joseph’s Catholic Primary School in Goodson Road, Willesden and Wembley Primary School in East Lane, Wembley, were all involved.

The fun programme was put on by the supermarket along with Sports Leaders UK, a charity which works to give young people qualifications and leadership skills.

Thirty Sport Leaders from Kingsbury High School in Princes Avenue, Kingsbury, planned and ran the day’s activities which included kwik cricket, a high-speed version of the game using a plastic bat and ball, and relay races.

They all competed at Burnt Oak Leisure Centre on Monday.

Jeremy Waxman, headteacher at Kingsbury High School, said: “Sports leadership is a vibrant and important part of the life of our school.
