St Joseph'sCatholic Primary School & Nursery
Basketball and Gymnastic team compete in County School Games
On Friday 15th April, a team of 16 children from St Joseph's travelled to Millfield in Street to represent the Sedgemoor area (and the school) in the County Spring Games Finals. Five Gymnasts from Key Stage 1 and five from Key Stage 2 took to the floor and the spring board in an effort to be crowned County Champions! The teams competed with passion and determination and performed extremely well, especially as many of the children were a year under age. Although we did not manage to place as a team, one of the children did win an individual bronze medal, which is an achievement in itself considering the level of competition. A huge well done to all of you. A truly brilliant effort!
In a separate part of the school, six of our very talented boys in Year 6 were competing in the basketball competition, once again looking to be crowned County champions! The boys played some of the best basketball I have seen in a very long time and despite loosing the first couple of games, they regrouped and rather than feeling sorry for themselves, galvanised into action, winning the next two games and drawing the following two......it was just brilliant to watch! They eventually ended the competition in 4th place, sadly just outside the medals but holding their heads high after a truly spirited performance!
