Our Lady of Perpetual Succour Catholic Primary School are delighted with the relationship they have with Widnes Vikings as a Partner School. 

The Partner School programme sees schools utilise part of their Sports Premium funding in order to gain quality coaching and pupil engagement activity for every week of the academic year. It also allows for schools pupils to gain additional opportunities for player engagement and unique experiences through education and health programmes.

Our Lady's school have taken part in a range of projects with the Vikings, including Sky Try in which they went to St James' Park for Magic Weekend in 2016 to take part in a festival in Newcastle. They are also scheduled to join our Game Changer programme which only emphasises the school's ethos to physical fitness and healthy lifestyle.

James Owen, Community Coach at Widnes Vikings, says: "The relationship that we have with Our Lady's School is one that is hugely rewarding,"

"Going into the school and delivering sessions, I can see the development of the children in terms of physical fitness and the enjoyment they get from the sessions. Their rugby skills are no doubt improving and I am hoping the after-school sessions can continue to grow.

"Our Lady's staff have been an absolute pleasure to work alongside and I look forward to continuining the relationship we have with the school."

Marie Quirk, teacher at Our Lady's Primary school, says: "Our Lady of Perpetual Succour are very pleased with the partnership we have with Widnes Vikings," he said.

"We are especially pleased with James Owen, Community Coach at the Vikings, who is excellent with the children both in the PE lessons and after school clubs.  He engages all the children in a variety of ways through games and skill based activities. All the children are enthusiastic and enjoy the activities.

"We look forward to continuing our relationship we have with the Club in the future."
