St Joseph'sCatholic Primary & Nursery School

Fabulous 6th In Area Sports!

Today, a team of 20 children from St Joseph's travelled all the way to Brymore Academy in Cannington to compete in this years Sedgemoor Schools Area Sports! With around 200 children congregating on the Brymore sports fields, the standard of competition was immense! Each of the children had to compete in a 400m, a 75m sprint, a standing long jump and a vortex howler throw against nine other children from the other schools taking parts. If you finished in the top four you were rewarded with a certificate and earned points for your school! Every single child from St Joseph's finished in a top four position in at least one of their events and many of the team had multiple top four finishes! The competition ended with relays and a presentation in a nearby marquee. With a 6th place finish, the children of St Joseph's should be very proud of themselves. Many of the schools competing today are at least double the size of our tiny school and well over half of the St Joseph's team were from Year 4 or 5 and will be eligible to race again next year! A great all round performance from everyone and I look forward to next year's competition.
