St Laurence's to the fore!

Pupils from St Laurence’s Primary school, Kirkby are celebrating after winning the Knowsley mixed age Tri-Golf Tournament held at Kirkby Sports College.

The team chosen from Year 3 to Year 6 pupils consisted of five boys and five girls, will represent Knowsley at the Merseyside finals. In November 2000 the gold foundation launched the ‘mini’ version of golf specifically for use by children in primary schools.

Tri-golf equipment is the only adapted golf resource developed specifically for use in British schools. Each tri-golf pack includes chippers with over-szed clubheads, putters and a variety of over-sized foam balls and other items needed to run the games and activities.

The clubs have been specially designed so that they are safe to use in the school environment and make it easy for the children to achieve success.

The boys representing St Laurence’s included: Thomas Cashen (Y4), John Terry Walsh (Y3), Owen Cain (Y6), Leon Beckwith (Y6), Thomas Davies (Y6) and Dylan Landry (Y5). The girls included: Emily Cassidy (Y5), Molly McIntosh (Y5), Taylor Shelley (Y6), Nell Slater (Y6) and Stevie Foster (Y6).
