14 Jun 2017
Prize winners in the annual Belfast Parks Primary Schools Athletic Shield and Cup competition have received their trophies and medals.

Some 500 children and 38 schools from the greater Belfast area took part in this year’s event.

“It is a great credit to our schools for encouraging their pupils to participate. Belfast City Council takes great pride in encouraging our younger generations to get active – we want to promote the importance of leading a healthy lifestyle,” commented Alderman Tommy Sandford, Chair of the People and Communities Committee, who presented the winning pupils and schools with their trophies and medals at a ceremony at the Mary Peters Track this morning.

Killowen Primary School won the team award for best overall score while Elsa McCallum from Downey House and Andrew Walsh from Lisnasharragh PS respectively won the individual girl and boy titles.
