AN Olympic-style parade marked the start of a Hampshire school’s sports day.

About 400 competitors took part in the event at Noadswood School in Dibden Purlieu, with each of the four school houses parading a banner and mascot.

The parade was led by the school’s sports personalities of the year – Jade Crouch and Tom Nash.

Pupils raised about £2,000 for three charities, Cancer Research UK, the Rainbow Trust and the Piam Brown ward at Southampton General Hospital.
