Torch relay for Kimberley family of schools

Kids in the Kimberley family of schools did a torch relay this week to celebrate the Olympics.

Pupils at Awsworth Primary School made the torch and small groups of kids ran with it from one school to the next.

Louise Croft at The Kimberley School, who organised the relay, said: “Most schools had the children out clapping as they arrived and at Gilthill Primary it was their sports day so that was well timed.”

Year seven pupil at the Kimberley School Olivia Foster was one of four people in the area who ran with the Olympic torch last month.

She was nominated for her sporting achievements and on the day of the school relay on Tuesday this week took her torch around several schools for people to see.
