Two teams from Stanhope qualified for the County Summer School Games Finals at Silksworth Sports Complex. We had a team in the Y3/4 Tennis and the Y3/4 Athletics competitions. It was a joy to see all of our pupils working so hard, enjoying the competition and being wonderful sports.
At the beginning of the day, the children listened to an inspirational speech by Team GB Olympian Peter Bakare. He spoke about his great journey to becoming an Olympian, after overcoming serious injury problems. Peter encouraged the children to ‘aim high and reach higher’.
In the Y3/4 Tennis, the team finished 5th in their group. A great result for their first year taking part in any competitive sports.
Well done to all eighteen of our athletes and tennis players; who were all a credit to our school displaying the Olympic values. It was a brilliant end to the sporting year!
