Three St. Bede’s teams enjoyed competing at Monkton Stadium in the South Tyneside Athletics competition today! There were lots of excellent personal best performances with our A team finishing 4th, agonisingly just outside the medals despite their very best efforts. The B team came a highly creditable 7th too in a brilliant event, that was keenly contested by the 21 teams involved.
I was very proud to see everyone pushing themselves and supporting each other with lots of positive energy; so everyone should be pleased with their performances. Many of our Y4’s will take part in the Y5/6 athletics next year, while our youthful Y3’s who heavily featured today should feel confident when competing in the same Y3/4 event next year.
Finally, thank you to all of the children for keenly attending training and our brilliant parent helpers who supported our children so enthusiastically and considerately throughout.
