On the run up to Christmas we kept the tradition running and invited all the Hyndburn & Ribble Valley primary schools down to Wilson’s playing fields to take part in the Annual Santa Dash. This year the sun shone bright as over 300 children took part in a carousel of 3 different activities. Children & teachers came dressed in their Christmas gear ready to take part and enjoy the afternoon. The Accrington Academy sports leaders motivated and encouraged the children to run a mile around the track as they completed the Santa dash in style. The Accrington Academy dance leaders delivered a dance session were the children learnt a Christmas dance to Ariana Grande’s ‘Santa tell me’. The third activity was delivered by Mrs Clarke & Accrington Academy’s Choir ‘Vocal Adrenaline’ they performed festive songs and got the children singing along. This event was fun and festive, the Accrington Academy Students did a fantastic as well as all the children that took part! Please Scroll across to see more photos.
