Easter arrived early for pupils at Dunn Street Primary School, Jarrow, and Stanhope Barrington Church of England Primary School, Bishop Auckland, when A Level Sport and Leisure students from QE, hosted an Easter themed sports and activities day. Games included an Easter egg hunt, Easter bunny dress up and tag rugby with an emphasis being placed on having fun, whilst also keeping fit and leading a healthy lifestyle. The day concluded with the children each being awarded a personalised certificate and goodies to take home.

Student, Ben Pawlett, comments: ‘It was a great experience going out to the schools and teaching the pupils about sport and exercise. Everyone was a winner during the event, both the children and us’. Paul Carroll, Teacher of Sport and Leisure at QE, adds: ‘It was wonderful to see our students working so well with the school children, they thoroughly enjoyed the activities and learnt about the importance of taking regular exercise. A lot of thought and preparation was put in by the students at such a vital stage of their course, we are extremely proud of them’.
