STAFF are carrying on the Olympic legacy at Ab Kettleby Primary School by launching a new P.E kit which features an emblem carrying the message ‘Loving Sport.’
All pupils at the school were presented with the new yellow and black kit, to represent the colours of a bumblebee, at a special celebration event held on Friday.
The event also saw the opening of a new classroom and outdoor learning space for the school’s youngest learners.
Paralysed London Marathon heroine Claire Lomas of Eye Kettleby was invited to attend the launch as well as Melton’s deputy mayor Marilyn Gordon, who cut the ribbon on the new build.
To celebrate the school’s new sports kit pupils held a mini-sports day and parents took part in a sports quiz. There was also a barbecue and bar organised by FOAKS, the friends of Ab Kettleby School association.
Co-headteacher Clare Allen said: “The event provided the perfect opportunity for the community to come together and celebrate the school’s recent achievements.
“We invited Claire because we want to inspire pupils to try hard and experience success and Claire epitomises that.”
