A small group of children from Year 5 and 6 recently competed in the Derwentside District Athletics Competition at the Riverside Athletics complex in Chester Le Street. Although a competition in itself, this event is a preliminary round used to help select children from across our local area to represent Team Derwentside in the County Athletics Competition later in the year. All who took part put in 100% effort throughout and where fantastic representatives of our school. The children performed excellently on the day with our school finishing in 1st place overall to take away gold medals! Furthermore, congratulations to Sandra, Samantha and Jack who also won their individual events overall! Everyone who took part should be very proud of their success this week and we wish all the children who qualified the best of luck in the County Athletics Competition later in the year!
