On Wednesday 14th March the Cross Country team had not one but TWO events where they were required to run their socks off. In the morning they were running in the West Yorkshire School Games Competition where they all did exceptionally well. A huge well done to our Y4 girls, who bagged gold, and our Y4 boys who got silver. In the afternoon it was on to the John Charles Centre in South Leeds to take part in the final race of the season for the Leeds Schools Athletics Association. We are still awaiting the result to this event. A big thank you to all the children for coming along and giving their very best and also many thanks to the parents who came along to support.

Netball Match 5.2.18

After school, we travelled to West End Lane with our Netball Squad to play 3 matches. For some of the squad, this was the first ever match they had been to and everyone did a fantastic job. We won one of our matches but the scoreline just doesn't do our performance justice as there were some fantastic passes made and some terrific defending.

Thanks to parents for getting your children there and back and also to the teaching staff to help coordinate this brilliant event.
