Hitchin students go for gold in Olympic events
SCHOOLCHILDREN have been going for gold by getting into the Olympic spirit.
Pupils at Highbury Infant School promoted Health Awareness Day in Hitchin, in conjunction with Family Fitness.
The aim of the day was to prove that, if children have a positive and enjoyable experience of exercise when they are young, they are more likely to continue with it throughout their lives.
The school encourages its pupils to do so, and runs cheerleading and circuit training sessions. They displayed their skills at the event in Hitchin Market Place.
Meanwhile, children at St Ippolyts CE Aided Primary School also started Olympic celebrations early.
