Local Schools Excel at Sports Hall Athletics Competition

February 13, 2018

Lisburn & Castlereagh City Council was delighted to welcome over 200 energetic Primary 7 pupils from schools across the Council area, to compete at the Sports Hall Athletics competition, held at Lough Moss Leisure Centre, Carryduff and Lagan Valley LeisurePlex, Lisburn.

Organised by the Council’s Sports Development Unit, the two day event consisted of a series of different relays and field disciplines.

On Tuesday 6th February, boys and girls jumped into action at Lagan Valley LeisurePlex, with Moira Primary School coming out on top as overall school winners. The competition continued at Lough Moss Leisure Centre on Wednesday 7th February, with St Joseph’s Primary School, Carryduff, taking the winning spot.

Chairman of the Council’s Leisure and Community Development Committee, Alderman James Tinsley said: “This was a fantastic event to be involved in and I was particularly impressed with the level of enthusiasm, talent and competitiveness of the children involved.

“As always, the Council continues to provide activities and events that provide children with the opportunity to get active, express their competitive side and develop confidence in a fun environment. 

“I would like to commend the Sports Development Unit as well as the Council’s Every Body Active 2020 team for organising such a great event, with the emphasis on getting children active very much at the forefront.”

Lisburn & Castlereagh City Council will be sending a team from the P7 Sports Hall Athletics event to the Northern Ireland finals, which will be held on Wednesday 7th March 2018.
