A group of Liverpool schools from the borough of Sefton recently got together to host their own Olympics.
The Bootle Summer Olympics, the brainchild of Patrick Kearney, deputy head at Savio Salesian College, saw St Monica’s, Holy Spirit All Saints, Our Lady of Walsingham, Our Lady Star of the Sea, St Robert Bellarmine, St Elizabeths and hosts Savio all competing for the title of Olympic champions in sports including sprint races, the 600 metres, obstacle runs, relays, standing long jump, tri-golf, seated volleyball and speed stacking.
After the event, which was sponsored by acclaimed Liverpool eaterie The Quarter, a delighted Mr. Kearney said:
“It took a lot of organisation but we had some brilliant collaborations with all the schools involved plus our sponsor the 60 Hope Street Group who were very thoughtful in their goodwill to provide catering for us on the day. I also want to thank my home team for their help in making the inaugural Bootle Olympics happen. They were simply fantastic as was the day.”
