Fun and fitness were the order of the day for children taking part in a tag rugby festival.
The festival was run by Year 8 pupils - known as Young Sports Leaders - at Greneway School for Year 3 and 4 pupils, who also came from Icknield Walk, Reed, and Studlands Rise first schools.
The session, run by children for children, aims to cultivate a range of skills, including co-operation, integration, and determination, as well as a sense of individual and collective responsibility.
The leaders helped the younger children in coaching sessions which stressed enjoyment and teamwork, organised by Greneway's sport co-ordinators Terry Graves and Rob Dowler.
Each participant received a commemorative certificate.
Tag rugby is a fast moving non-contact version of the sport.
