Primary Schools Join Louth Academy Students For New Age Kurling Festival

The Louth Academy New Age Kurling Festival for Primary School pupils. Pictured (l-r) are Ruby Carter, Cameron McKee, Harrison Holmes and Charley Glasgow. With them are Louth Academy Sports Leaders (l-r) Jess Clark, Jamie Smith, Dexter Chapman, Rachel Booth and Grace Smith.

One hundred and eighty children from eight local Primary Schools took part in a New Age Kurling Festival at Louth Academy with matches officiated by student Sports Leaders.

New Age Kurling is a form of the original curling game, but it has been adapted so that it can be played indoors on any smooth, flat surface, such as a Sports Hall, rather than on ice.

Smaller Primary Schools took part in a morning session. These included teams from Grasby, North Cockerington, Eastwold and Nettleton. In the afternoon it was the turn of the larger schools, including Caistor, St Michael's, Lacey Gardens and Grimoldby.

Tim Lowe, Curriculum Leader for P.E. at Louth Academy, said: "Our Sports Leaders officiated the matches helping to ensure the event ran smoothly. They performed their roles well throughout the day, receiving many positive comments regarding their professionalism. Everyone really enjoyed the day."
