Congratulations to Saltford Primary School Year 6 Quadkid athletes who were crowned the county sports champions at Wesport’s 2019 Summer School Games Competition.

The games, which was attended by 45 primary and 10 secondary schools, began with the opening ceremony where the children were reminded of The School Games Values: Respect, Determination, Teamwork, Passion, Self Belief and Honesty. Simran Kaur, a Team GB para athlete, gave an inspirational speech informing us that she too had participated at this very event in 2017 before qualifying to represent her country.

“Throughout the day, the School Games Values were evident,” said Melissa Brook, Saltford Primary’s PE coordinator. “The children’s passion, determination and self belief were in abundance as the children competed against 19 other teams from the South West, creating a truly extra special atmosphere. We were all ecstatic when the results revealed that Saltford were crowned The 2019 County Sports Champions with their staggering total score of 1768 points for each discipline: 600m, javelin, sprint and long jump.

“Furthermore, Jake S and Brooke T were each awarded individual bronze medals, Ed N, a silver and Holly S a gold!

“Thank you to the parents who kindly offered to transport the children, to Mrs Smith who provided the much needed gazebo and to Wesport for organising a such a brilliant event!”
