On Friday 28th June, Gatten and Lake Primary participated in the PEACH Games at The Bay C.E. Secondary School. PEACH is an acronym for Physical Education And Child Health and is a joint venture between the School games Organisers and The Isle of Wight Council Public Health Team.
The PEACH ethos is designed to provide opportunities for primary school aged children to lead a healthy lifestyle and to participate in sports and physical activities. Each school across a cluster area was asked to choose a sport or in some cases sports in which to participate and represent their cluster area. There are 6 primary sports cluster areas. Ryde, Newport, Cowes,West Wight, Ventnor and The Bay. There were 9 sports being contested with 42 boys and 42 girls from each cluster making up the teams.
The Gatten and Lake team represented the area in the archery competition against schools from the five other areas, and were an absolute credit to the school.
The day was declared a great success enjoyed by everyone involved from the organisers to the athletes and will now become an annual event in the school games calendar
