PUPILS from Golden Flatts Primary School seem to have their after school hours sorted.

From playing football, to practising archery, to dancing and even horse riding, these children have a very busy time once the school bell sounds.

Lewis Harmen said: “I look after my horse. I clean him out, brush him and go on the horse and cart.

“We take him round Seaton and onto the beach and into the sea.”

Alex Hutchinson said: “I go football training and play football with friends.

“I play for Middlesbrough Academy at Darlington. I’m also a Middlesbrough fan.”

Gavin Lorimer said: “I used to go to boxing and I’m going to get back into it.

“I also play football with my friends and go to the skate park, which is my favourite.

“I go there with my family and friends.”

Olivia Thomas-Bate said: “I go to the youth club with my cousins and friends.

“I go to the one at Jutland Road and go on the computers.

“I walk the dog with my sister sometimes.”

Casey Thompson said: “I go dancing. I do ballroom and Latin down next to the town.

“I go by myself but I’ve made lots of friends down there.

“I’ve been in competitions and sometimes I’m a winner.”

Katie White said: “Me and my dad and cousin all go the field and do archery.

“It can be quite tricky at times and my dad is the best.”
