Today 24 children from Y3-6 competed at Temple Park Leisure Centre in the Tyne and Wear County Sportshall Athletics Finals.
Having qualified to represent South Tyneside when winning the previous round in October 2017 the children competed fiercely against very talented pupils from across the county.
The children have practiced diligently and with great heart for many months, both in school at break times and lunchtimes, as well as afterschool too. Their commitment has been second-to- none.
At the end of the event, when the scores of the pupils within each team were totalled, our Team were announced as 5th place finishers. Gosforth Central Middle School were crowned champions for the 3rd successive year.
There were some impressive performances, with great potential for future years demonstrated too –
Maddison Fontaine was 1st in the Speed Bounce with 55 repetitions.
Amie Cutter 3rd Speed Bounce 52 repetitions
Girls Over and Under Relay 1st 1:15.2 (New Competition Record)
Girls Speed Bounce 1st 153 repetitions
Girls Standing Triple Jump 3rd 14.72m
Sahib Basra Chest Push 2nd 7.25m
Boys Speed Bounce 2nd 158 repetitions
Boys Over and Under Relay 3rd 1:14.4
Boys Javelin 2nd 45m
We will work hard to come back even stronger and succeed in the Summer School Games Finals.
Well done to all of the pupils involved. I am very proud of each and every one of you.
