Elliot, Finlay, Thomas, Saqib, Clayton and Billy all worked really hard and were rewarded with a 3rd place and Bronze Medal. The boys were up against the very best in Tyne and Wear and showed they have a real talent for Indoor Athletics.
On Sunday 24th January, Elliot, Saqib and Clayton were selected to represent North Tyneside and compete in the Tyne and Wear School Games individual Sportshall athletics finals on Sunday 24th January 2016.

Jo Walton North Tyneside Team Manager summed up the rest of the results by saying:
“Clayton & Elliott were also part of the 4 x2 Relay team that finished 1st & Saqib was part of the obstacle relay that finished in 3rd place.”
Saqib stepped in to do a 2 lap for the team; this enabled us to get points for the team event. He finished in 9th place in the individual 2 lap and which got us some extra points on the board!
Outstanding effort from all three boys!”
