On Thursday 11th October, nine Year 6 children represented Stafford at the Eastbourne College swimming gala in their beautiful new pool. The boys and girls teams swam a mixture of races against 6 other schools, including individual and team races. All the children were amazing representatives for our school and we were really proud of them. Thank you so much to Mr Hester for his help and to all the parents, and Ms Perry and Ms Markides, for coming to support the children. Excitingly, our boys team came 2nd and the girls placed 4th - a fabulous achievement for our first time at this event.
On Thursday 18th October, 21 Year 5 and 6 children went to Hailsham Community College to take part in the South Downs Sportshall Athletics competition. The event included a range of track and field events, including different running and relay races, triple jump, speed bounce and many other activities. The children were excellent representatives for the school and we were really pleased to come 8th out of 13 schools who took part. Well done to all the children for representing Stafford so well and thank you to Mr Hester and Mr Walton for their help on the day.
