Pupils from across Keiss Primary School and Nursery joined together in a day of sports on Friday.

Children took part in penalty shoot-out, netball throw, hockey dribble, relay, welly-throwing and tug of war contests as well as traditional races in the afternoon. Nursery pupils also threw the welly and ran races with their school mates.

Family members supported their children and members of the parent council officiated. While the pupils stole the show, parents took part in a running race with Ben and Carla Taylor claiming the honours in their respective categories.

Keiss FC official Tristan Lowe lined the track for the day and Evan Sinclair and his team cut the playing field prior to the event.
