Recently, a group of Year 6 pupils competed in the District Athletics Competition at the Riverside Athletics complex in Chester Le Street. Although a competition in itself, this event is a trials event to help select children from across our local area to represent Derwentside in the Durham County Athletics Competition later in the year. All the children who took part put 100% effort into every event and where fantastic representatives of our school, cheering on one another throughout. The children performed excellently on the day with several winning their individual events which is a fantastic achievement. Everyone who took part should be very proud of their efforts and we wish all the children who qualify the best of luck in the Durham County Athletics Competition later in the year!
