MORE than 100 children from five local primary schools competed in a mini-Olympics contest in Denby.

John Flamsteed Community School hosted the event as part of its Healthy Schools initiative.

Youngsters from Denby Free, Horsley, Kilburn Infant and Nursery, Kilburn Junior, and Street Lane schools took part in a range of athletics events.

Sue Linacre, head of PE at John Flamsteed, said: “It was tremendous to see children of all ages trying their hearts out in every activity, and staff and parents cheering on every step.”
