CHILDREN represented different continents in a sports day with an international twist.
More than 1,000 pupils from five primary schools in Carterton took part in the Carterton Commonwealth Games yesterday.
They played mini tennis, football and tag rugby, as well as participating in athletics, dance and leadership activities at Carterton Community College.
There was also an opening ceremony with a Commonwealth theme, less than a fortnight before the real Commonwealth Games begin in Glasgow.
Event co-ordinator Rachel Mills said: “It was an opportunity for them to take part and with local coaches.”
The schools involved were Carterton Primary School, Edith Moorhouse Primary School, Gateway Primary School, St John’s Primary School and St Joseph’s Primary School.
