Ecclesbourne clean up at Croydon Athletics

It was a very successful week for Ecclesbourne at the Croydon Sports Athletics meet.  Ecclesbourne had a number of children competing in the finals on Wednesday.  There was individual glory with gold for our runners in the Year 4 boys' sprint and the Year 6 girls' sprint.  We also had a silver in the Year 5 boys' high jump and a bronze in the Year 3 boys' spirnt.

The highlight of the evening came with the final two races of the event.  First, in a thrilling final, the girls managed to win their relay event.  This was followed by the boys trying to retain the trophy they won last year.  Again, in a tense race, it came down to the final leg where a fantastic effort managed to seal a glorious victory.  To cap it all the boys managed to win the Overall Boys' Cup to go with the Relay Shield and Girls' Relay Cup.  Well done to everyone who took part.  It was a fantastic evening and we are all very proud of you.  Many thanks, also, to all the staff and parents who came along to support and to Miss Pettis, Miss Hunt and Mr Dunford for their help in organising everything.
