The participants competed in events including track/relays, standing triple jump, standing long jump, speed bounce, vertical jump and the indoor shot putt.

"They have given so much time and effort to the role and are reaping the rewards.
"We have seen them grow in confidence, build their skills in coaching and also achieve a positive team work ethic which allows them to organise events such as this."
The event was organised by the group of sports leaders at the academy, young people who have volunteered to deliver sports sessions for younger children.
On the day, Kingsbridge ran out winners in both the boys' and girls' events.
It is hoped another fixture will be arranged soon.
