School team are the ‘virtual’ champions of basketball challenge

School team are the ‘virtual’ champions of basketball challenge

by Danielle Thompson (October 2020)

CHILDREN at Crow Orchard Primary School in Skelmersdale are the proud winners of a ‘virtual basketball’ challenge.

The contest was organised by SHARES Lancashire, a not-for-profit company set up to support schools in West Lancashire.

Lesley Jones, a teacher at the school, said: “We try to ensure children get as much exercise and even outdoor lessons whenever possible. Obviously, the children were disappointed that the tournaments they usually take part in had to be cancelled due to Covid but SHARES Lancashire cleverly devised virtual tournaments whereby the children carried out challenges at their own schools and the recorded scores were collated by the SHARES coaches.”
