Glebelands School in Cranleigh hosted its own version of an Olympic Games competition for primary pupils in the area.

Teams of athletes from Park Mead, Tillingbourne, St Cuthbert Mayne and Cranleigh Primary schools took part in QuadKids, an athletics competition aimed at allowing young athletes to compete in adapted versions of Olympic sports.

In teams of eight, the children competed in four disciplines - a throw, jump, sprint and middle distance run.  The competition was tight and only a few points separated each school.

Leading the event were 16 Year 9 students from Glebelands, who spent the afternoon time-keeping, measuring and recording results as well as announcing the final scores and awarding medals to the teams who achieved gold, silver or bronze.

The afternoon ended with two very loud and competitive relay races before Park Mead was announced the overall winning team, beating Cranleigh Primary by just 20 points.
