The Awards Presentation

LSSP has been supporting PE, physical activity and school sport since 2000. Its aim is to help all children and young people access high quality PE, physical activity and sport in their school and community.

The LSSP team organise a coordinated programme of events and competitions throughout the year which make a difference to teachers and young people.

Event organiser Jay Watkinson from LSSP says: “It’s so important to promote sport and healthy lifestyles from a young age and this event did just that.

“The atmosphere at the festival was fantastic and to see so many children active and excited about participating in sport was great. The awards presentation celebrated every pupil’s talent, determination and effort – everyone went home a winner!

“We couldn’t have done it without the support of our sports leaders from Broadgreen International so a big thank you to them.”
