Scintilating Silver for Sportshall Athletics team at the Tyne and Wear County Finals!

Today 23 children from Y4-6 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 November 2018 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 RUNNERS-UP. Gosforth Central Middle School (winners for the previous 3 years) were THIRD and Kings crowned CHAMPIONS.

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