Brilliant Bronze for Sportshall Athletics team at the Tyne and Wear County Finals!

Today 25 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 (for the third year in succession) in November 2019 the children competed fiercely against very talented pupils from across the county.
The children have practiced diligently and with great determination for many months, both in school at break times and lunchtimes, as well as after-school 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 BONZE MEDALISTS. Wellfield Middle School were 2nd and Kings crowned CHAMPIONS.

There were some impressive performances, with great potential for future years demonstrated too.
