Thirty Y3/4 St. Bede’s athletes had a wonderful time competing in the District Athletics Championships at Monkton Stadium. During the presentation, it was amazing to discover that not only had our B team finished 5th, but our A team were crowned District Champions! They will now go on to represent South Tyneside in the County Finals on Tuesday 20th June.
I was so proud to see our children achieve personal best performances; while they keenly supported each other throughout the day. It was also great to see so much support for St. Bede’s from our school community inside the stadium, which really helped inspire our teams.
It has been a great pleasure training our squad of 30 players this year, as their attitude in training has been brilliant. Meanwhile, their behaviour at the tournament was absolutely exemplary. Congratulations to our whole squad on a great day’s athletics, and good luck to our A team in the County Finals!
