Park Community School hosted a Year 5 Olympics 2012 athletics festival in which more than 200 primary school pupils took part.

The pupils were divided into teams from all the schools taking part to encourage them to appreciate the Olympic values of friendship, respect and excellence and were given an Olympic country to represent.

They were taught the basics of 10 athletic events by Park School’s Year 10 sports leaders before competing in each event to produce a team score.

Gold medallists were the team representing South Africa, with Italy taking the silver medal and Brazil the bronze.
