Salterlee Primary School

Tour de Yorkshire Celebrations


To celebrate the inaugural Tour de Yorkshire, schools in the East Calderdale Learning Cluster took part in a number of events which were brilliantly organised by Mr Gentry at St Chad’s.

Events began early in the day with a peloton of riders representing schools in our cluster arriving in Shibden. Later pupils from Salterlee visited a number of schools in our cluster to enjoy a superb display of stunt riding.

The day concluded with pupils in Class 4 taking part in a series of cycle races at St Chad’s. There were expertly organised by a former Olympic cyclist.

Special thanks go not only to Mr Gentry and the children of St Chad’s who kindly lent us their bikes, but also to everyone at Carr Green, St John’s Clifton and Cliffe Hill who enabled our pupils to enjoy the displays with them as our playground was too small. It was a terrific way to celebrate the start of Yorkshire’s biggest sporting event.
