A PRIMARY school in Litherland has been nominated for an award in recognition of the importance they place on sports.
St Elizabeth's Catholic Primary has been shortlisted for an Educate Award for Outstanding Commitment to School Sport.
Some of their PE-based initiatives include giving children free sports equipment during the various lockdowns and fully-funded trips to Crosby Hall Educational Trust for activity days.
They also had recent visits from Paralympic Medal winner Beth Munroe and record-breaking amputee Andy Grant, who both gave inspirational talks to the children.
Headteacher Liam Daniels: “I am delighted that we have been short-listed for this award for a second time in recent years.
“Throughout the pandemic, we have done all that we can to help to keep the children active, providing them with equipment to take part in physical challenges whilst in school and at home.
“We are extremely fortunate to have such a dedicated PE co-ordinator who works tirelessly to provide new and exciting opportunities for the children.
“Added to this, all of our staff are willing to get involved and take part in new challenges and initiatives.
“To their credit, whatever opportunities we offer, our fantastic children embrace them and give 100% to each activity.”
