Three hundred primary school pupils from across the Island took part in the fourth annual PEACH Games.

Held at West Wight Sports Centre on June 28, the event offered a variety of sports including orienteering, archery and boccia.

Organised by the Public Health Team of the Isle of Wight Council, in collaboration with Premier School Sport Coaching, this marked a successful year for the Partnership for Education, Attainment and Children’s Health (PEACH) programme.

Pupils engaged in both team-based and individual sports, improving personal skills, cardiovascular health and coordination.

As well as sports, pupils learned about different physical activity options and first aid.

Some children told organisers it was the best day of their lives.

Isle of Wight High Sheriff, Graham Biss, said: "It was great to see the energy and enthusiasm across all the different activities and all the children having a go!"

Simon Bryant, IW director of public health, said: "We know good health and school attainment are connected together.

"The PEACH Games are important to promote physical activity, positive wellbeing, and healthy competition. This supports young people to lead healthy lives with plenty of exercise and a good, balanced diet."
