Schools take part in gaming world championships

Energetic youngsters took part in a video game competition with a difference at the Active Gaming World Championships on Friday.

Pupils from Courthouse Junior School and St Luke's CofE Primary School in Maidenhead were among the competitors as schools from Berkshire and Buckinghamshire flocked to the Beacon Centre in Holtspur for the gaming tournament.

The event, organised by Active Gamerz, is the only competition of its kind in the world and involves players using motion sensor technology with a Playstation 3 to take on a series of challenges.

St Luke's finished runners-up in the tournament, winning £60 in sport vouchers for the school.
