Neston Primary School's Sports Week was official opened by the former captain of St.Helens and Great Britain Rugby League teams, Paul 'Scully' Sculthorpe.
Paul took part in an opening ceremony, in which some children dressed up as their favourite sports heroes, including Andy Murray, Jade Jones, Rebecca Adlington and Sam Quek.
Paul also talked to the children about the importance of enjoying sport, keeping healthy and trying hard. He also brought some of his medals to show the children and later ignited the school's sports week cauldron.
After the opening ceremony Paul stayed and signed autographs for the children.
"'Scully' was very generous with his time. It was a pleasure to meet him and I would like to thank him for opening our sports week and for being such an inspiration to the pupils", said Rob Golding, Headteacher.
