St Bede’s Catholic Primary and Nursery School, part of Bishop Chadwick Catholic Education Trust, proved its sporting versatility with recent successes at the South Tyneside Cross Country meeting and in the Champion of Champions Regional Basketball Finals.
Runaway success for cross country runners in South Shields.
St Bede’s Catholic Primary and Nursery School, took part in the annual championships at Temple Park. A total of 42 children took part in the competition which included eight races for boys and girls from Year 3 to Year 6.
The Y3 boys, Y4 girls and Y4 boys won their class events while the Y3 girls claimed the silver.
Good performances from the Year 5 and Year 6 runners also helped St Bede’s claim overall victory at the event and claim the District Champions Shield.
The children had all shown dedication by regularly attending training sessions on Fridays after school in the build up to the event. This helped the St. Bede’s runners prepare and achieve personal best performances on the day.
Coach and Y3 teacher Brian McVittie said: “I was delighted how everyone supported each other at the event, with our Y6’s cheering on the Y3’s and vice versa. I hope the success of the squad will encourage more children to get involved in future school Cross Country events.”
