The London Olympics legacy lives on in south Lincolnshire’s schools.

Hundreds of pupils have been involved in sporting events planned to attract more pupils into sport, competition and healthy exercise.

Agilitas Sports, which organises sports competitions in the county’s schools, has a timetable of events lined up for this spring.

These include a hockey match at Surfleet later this month and a netball game at Spalding High School early in February.

Also in February is a cross country at Spalding Grammar School, while in March there is a volleyball match at Spalding High School, in addition to a dance in South Holland Centre in Spalding.

Indoor athletics are also in the pipeline, although dates for these haven’t been confirmed.

The events follow the Lincolnshire South East Sainsbury’s Games Years 5/6 contest, won by Monkshouse Primary School in Spalding in the large school section while Thurlby Primary School players were champions in the small schools’ division.

Agilitas Sports’ Rupert Gibson said they had also held a Years 7, 8 and 9 Boys’ and Girls’ Indoor Rowing.

Teams of four from Spalding High School, The Priory, University Academy Holbeach, Bourne Academy and Sir John Gleed School battled it out in interactive races.
