On Monday 7th July Kingsbury High School hosted one of the UK’s first Asda Active Sports Days, themed around the Commonwealth Games.

Kingsbury High School students, who are part of the Sports Leaders UK programme, led the activities as part of the Asda Active campaign.

Over 300 primary school students took part in sports including netball, football, cricket and Unihoc.

Annette Woodrow, Head of Physical Education and Extended Learning at Kingsbury High School, said “Healthy eating and exercise is something we strongly advise among the children here and with the help of Asda Community Life and Sports Leaders UK, we hope to see this continue to go from strength to strength.

“Keeping the spirit of 2012 alive in our local community is very important for youngsters and I hope this event will inspire them to get active, keep healthy, and volunteer themselves in the future.”

Vanitha Kumar, the community life champion at Asda Colindale said “The sports leaders are local young people who have committed to volunteering and I’m thrilled to support them with showing the school children how to fuel their activities with healthier snacks.”

Attending primary schools were Roe Green Juniors School, St Robert Southwell RC School, Fryent Primary School, Oliver Goldsmiths Primary School and Kingsbury Green Primary School.
