More than 300 primary school pupils showed their sporting skills when they competed at the Pembrokeshire Primary School Athletics competition recently.

The event, sponsored by Pembroke Refinery, Valero, was organised by Sport Pembrokeshire, which is Pembrokeshire County Council's sport development service, and run in conjunction with the Pembrokeshire Harriers Athletics Club.

Tavernspite School overcame the challenge from 17 other schools to came out on top and be crowned champions following events such as long jump, shot putt, javelin, sprints, relays and para events for visual and physical impairment.

Tavernspite topped the table with 351 points, while second-placed Golden Grove, with 343 points, pipped third-placed Cleddau Reach, who finished on 342.

Pembrokeshire County Council active young people manager, Matt Freeman, said the event was the strongest yet.

He commented: "This event continues to go from strength to strength, and once again there were some outstanding performances.

"The link with Pembrokeshire Harriers is vital, as we try to enable more children competing today to become involved with athletics and to help move the sport and the club forwards in the county,

"For some, the event is the first opportunity to compete at the Sir Thomas Picton track, which is a great experience and one they will never forget."

Pembrokeshire County Council cabinet member for education and lifelong learning, Councillor David Lloyd, presented the awards, along with the authority's head of service for performance and community, James White.

Said Councillor Lloyd: "Congratulations to Tavernspite and to all the schools that entered.

"It was wonderful to see so many children challenging themselves and gaining so much enjoyment from doing so."
