Inspired by a sporting hero, hundreds of youngsters took part in the country’s biggest school sports event.
Pupils at Westbourne Sports College and Copleston High School in Ipswich gathered with their peers from 44 Suffolk schools at Northgate Sports Centre to celebrate the start of this year’s Lloyds TSB National School Sport Week.
They were joined by Commonwealth Games gold medallist sprinter Leon Baptiste and Lloyds TSB athlete Joshua Bain.
The pair led the youngsters through a series of Olympic-themed activities, harnessing the legacy of the London 2012 games to inspire a generation to take up sport.
Leon Baptiste, said: “It has been fantastic. These pupils have been truly inspired by the Games and National School Sport Week and are eager to continue the celebrations and try out new sports.”
