Barnstaple Schools Olympic Legacy Festival

Thursday, 13th June – Park School


This year’s Barnstaple Schools’ Olympic Legacy Festival is being held on Thursday, 11th June.  This event has run almost every year since the 2012 Olympic Torch Relay and we are always proud to send a team to take part.


The event involves 4 mixed year and mixed gender relay races, as well as 2 mini marathons for selected children. 


We plan to walk to Park School ready for a picnic lunch at 11am.  The opening ceremony and competition will take place on the Park School athletic track and will finish at approximately 2.30pm with presentations and a closing ceremony. 


If you are able to collect your child at 2.50pm promptly from Park School, please could you mark that on that on the slip sent home.  If you are unable to collect your child we will walk back to school and should arrive at approx. 3.30pm, please bear with us if we are a little late for the normal end of school day.


The children will need to wear their PE kit, with trainers, to school and will need:-


Packed lunch                                            Drink in a named, plastic bottle

Jumper (in case it is cold)                         Coat

Sunhat                                                        Sun cream (that they can apply themselves)


If you have pre-booked a school packed lunch this will be provided for you.
