Jun

On Wednesday, 21st June the 8th Annual A*STARS (Active Sustainable Travel And Road Safety) Inter School Quiz took place in Walsall’s Town Hall.

After completing quizzes against their classmates, each school was then invited to enter their winning team to compete for the coveted A*STARS Inter-Schools trophy. The competition was fierce, with 26 schools in attendance and teachers/ parents looking on in support.

As part of the afternoon, children were also treated to workshops delivered by colleagues in Walsall Leisure including a 10 minute shake up, why drink water, sporting skills and A-Z of Sports.

After 3 rounds of questions, Park Hall Junior Academy emerged as victors, with Watling Street Primary and Rushall Primary in 2nd and 3rd places respectively. The Mayor of Walsall, Cllr Marco Longhi, was on hand to award the trophy to the winning team and even participated in the quiz!

Well done to everyone who participated on the day, it was a fun filled afternoon testing key road safety skills learnt throughout the past year.
