pupils crowned athletics county champions
A group of pupils from Burnham-On-Sea's St Joseph's School
are celebrating this week after being crowned county champions!
The 23 Year 5 and 6 boys and girls from St Joseph's travelled
to Yeovil College on Tuesday (28th January) to compete in the
Sports Hall Athletics County Finals.
Having won the Bridgwater and District competition back in December,
the children were selected to represent the area and compete against
the best schools in Somerset.
After a hard-fought competition involving an array of running,
throwing and jumping events, the team eventually went on to win
and were crowned county champions.
P.E. co-ordinator Mark Fisher said: "Beating off local
competition from ten other schools in the Bridgwater area was
a huge result for us, but to go on and win the county finals as
well is a magnificent achievement and is all down to the hard
work and determination of the children concerned."
Each child was given a brand new tracksuit top to wear on the
day thanks to sponsorship from Burnhams local boilerman
Rob and Worcester Bosch.
