Pupils at Tower Hamlets school try ball games for sports day

Students tried their hand at cricket and bench ball, alongside athletics, during a sports day at Millwall Park.

The pupils from George Greens School took part in their annual sports day last week, which historically has focused solely on athletics.

Year ten student Jodie Smith said: “It was the best sports day ever. It wasn’t all just about running and jumping. We got to play bench ball which was a right laugh.”

This year’s event also included sports such as javelin and long jump.
