A TEAM of pupils have become a Forest school’s first-ever county champions.

The quartet from St White’s Primary School in Cinderford took the Gloucestershire trophy in New Age Kurling.

The game has been adapted from curling to be played on a flat surface.

Players have to send a ‘stone’ towards a target of concentric circles.

The nearer they get to the centre, the more points they score.

The pupils from Years Three and Four – Oliver Chappell, Holly Christopher, Kaycie-Jay Cox and McKenzie Emery –had previously become Forest of Dean champions at the end of 2019.

They then went to the School Games winter final where they were competing against the top 10 per cent of players in the county.

They went on to win the event, playing eight games and only losing one.

Luke Jones, the school’s PE co-ordinator, said: “It’s the first time we have had county champions.

“Everyone is so proud of the team and their achievement.”
