Children unleash their sporty side for Sport Relief

Waiting for Video...

Pupils and staff from schools across the island got active on Friday for Sport Relief.

Money raised will be used to help some of the poorest and most disadvantaged people in the British Isles and further afield.

Douglas shoppers were in for a surprise when Fairfield School’s year five and six pupils (ages nine to 11) performed a flash mob to Flo-Rida’s Good Feeling outside Marks and Spencer and then the Strand Shopping Centre.

A non-stop relay was held at Ballasalla School. A group of pupils was actively involved in sport all day – with a handover to ensure the relay continued without break.

They were dressed in colourful retro sportswear.

Pupils and staff at Ashley Hill School competed against each other in a netball match, while children at Rushen School completed a one mile walk/run.

Everyone at Braddan School dressed in their sports clothes for a whole school warm up before assembly.

Children at Manor Park School spent the afternoon taking part in everything from zumba to a netball shoot-out. There was also a cake sale.

A futsal (form of five a side football) and handball crossbar challenge took place at St Ninian’s lower school site.

Meanwhile, 40 staff from Canada Life cycled 190 miles between them in a cycle challenge at its Castletown offices to raise £300.
