The start of the 2023 School Games Sportshall Athletics competition starts next week and the children in years' 5 and 6 have been demonstrating amazing commitment and desire to be part of the competing Greswold team. In the end, 29 pupils were chosen to represent the school at the qualifying event next week at Tudor Grange Sports' Centre but the final decision was extremely difficult. The children really pushed themselves to do the best they could which has in turn enabled the chosen team to really exceed even their own expectations.
As always, thank you to the support of the PTA who always help to fund the extensive array of Sportshall Athletics equipment, helping the children to practise using Reversaboards, Hi-steppers, Speed Bounce mats, Medicine Balls, Foam Javelins and a whole host of other resources, which are the exact same products used at the events, something which has enormously helped previous teams to achieve some amazing results, as you can see below:
