HUNDREDS of schoolchildren kicked off a week of sporting activities last week.
Around 300 children took part in basketball, rounders and athletics at Leeds Road Playing Fields.
Pennine School Sport Partnership ran a week of events to celebrate National School Sports Week.
Every Year 4 pupil in Kirklees was able to join in the sports days.
Organiser Brenda Hilton was pleased with the start to the week of events.
She said: “It went really well and we were lucky with the weather.”
Brenda added that the sports days helped children from different schools mix.
She said: “It’s not one school against each other – all the children are mixed together and hopefully they will make new friends.”
Students from Huddersfield New College and Greenhead College helped to run the events.
