Year 4 Quad Kids Athletics Team West Midlands Champions!!
On Friday 8th July, 29 children competed in the championship at Warwick University. The day began with the Schools Games Level 3 Opening Ceremony, with the children watching dance teams, Chinese dragons, drummers and much more. After this, the teams were led off to the athletics track for the main event.
Our children lined up against teams from all over Warwickshire, Coventry and Solihull. They had to compete in the 400m, 50m sprint, Standing long jump and javelin throw. They also took part in several relays through out the day. Our Telford Team represented our school very well, and were keen and supportive of others, applauding not only other teams but all the teams. We were very proud!!!
After taking part in all the events the children were lined up in their teams, with about 250 pupils nervously awaiting the results. It was such an exciting moment, through the countdown of team positions and points score. We were overjoyed when we were announced as Gold Medal winners and West Midland Champions.
This is an amazing result, and was supported enthusiastically by Mrs Woodcock, Mrs O'Brien, Mrs Powell and also the huge number of parents and family members who had come to support us through out the day. Thank you for coming it was great being able to share the moment as a Telford family.
