Students get sporty

Archery, curling, basketball, football and more was on offer to those taking part in the Trevictus Games recently.


A group of students from Pool Academy spent the afternoon at Carn Brea Leisure Centre competing in the different sports.

The weather stayed dry and all those taking part in the event, organised by Trevithick Primary School, seemed to have a lovely time.

Vicky Reynolds, from Pool Academy, said: “All the students loved the activities and really enjoyed themselves. They got to try archery, curling, basketball, football penalties with Plymouth Argyle, tennis and jumping skills.  We also got to meet the Chuffy mascot.

“There was a lot of support and team work to make sure everyone had a positive experience.

“It was fantastic to see them all enjoying themselves. At the end of the event they all receive a medal.

“We are thankful to Trevithick Primary School staff for inviting us and we look forward to next year’s.”

Thirteen students from Pool Academy took part in the day.
