Schools 500

Schools 500

Our school entered a number of teams into the Newcastle Schools 500 Games this year and everyone who took part showed excellent commitment, determination, passion and teamwork in their sporting activities.

Both of our cross country teams won medals for their team efforts, with the boys coming in first place and the girls winning silver. Two of our pupils also won gold in the individual sections.

Our tag rugby team won silver in their tournament, the badminton team won bronze and the Year 3/4 multi skills team also won bronze. Our Year 2 Multi skills team, football teams, netball and bench ball teams also played extremely well and only just missed out on medal positions. It was a great celebration of sport and we are very proud of all of our pupils who took part.
