The School Games Mark is a Government led awards scheme launched in 2012 to reward schools for their commitment to the development of competition across their school and into the community. Last year we were proud to have earned a bronze mark but we worked hard to do even better and this year have achieved silver! Well done everyone!
A big well done to Lauren, Lenny, Ned, Tilly, Willow, Ben, Milo and Maddy, who put all of their swim practise into play last week as they gained 2nd place in a cluster swimming gala. The parents who were able to go along and support said that they did Neston proud! A special thank you to Annett Eggleton, who ably accompanied the team!
On Tuesday 3.10.17, sixteen of our fastest runners competed against 7 other schools at Biddestone Sports Ground and did Neston proud. All the competitors put in their best effort and were all good sports - supporting their own teams as well as others. Stand out individual performances included Izzy Richards, who showed that running regularly pays off with an impressive 3rd place; Finn Charlton, who earned everyone's respect by coming in 5th despite an unlucky start and coming from the very back and Darcey, Molly, Charlotte and Tim who were all in the top ten of their races. Congratulations to all of our runners, including the junior girls: Darcey (5th), Molly (6th), Charlotte (8th) and Chloe (16th), who won team gold in their age group. We hope that everyone's inspired to get running!
