KS1 Multi Sport Festival Results

Friday 25 October saw our KS1 events for this year kick off. It began at Gateshead Leisure Centre with the Multi Sport Festival. These festivals are now in their second year of operation and have become so popular that we have had to run 2 events across a full day to accommodate all schools.

220 KS1 pupils made their way to Gateshead Leisure Centre to participate in this event – more than double last year’s entries. They all entered the Maple Hall with great excitement and anticipation for what the day held in store for them in this partnership wide event. They were not disappointed and as the nerves and excitement settled each school team got down to the business in hand – to complete all 8 activity stations twice and aim to improve on their first round score.

Young Leaders from Whickham Academy and Sports College worked hard to put School teams through their paces at each station. They managed this brilliantly and were often seen steering the KS1 pupils in the right direction (literally!).

The day was, once again, a great success for all involved especially and most importantly the KS1 pupils themselves and the young leaders. The results were as follows:

Carr Hill and St Wilfrid’s finished in 2nd and 3rd positions with an improvement of 11% and 11.2% respectively. As you can see they were separated by the narrowest of margins – 0.2%!

Gibside Primary School were the very proud recipients of the Respect Certificate as selected by the young leaders from Whickham. This was decided because of for their great attitude, politeness and all round sportsmanship with each other and fellow competitors.
