The School Games Mark is a Government led award scheme launched in 2012, facilitated by the Youth Sport Trust to reward schools for their commitment to the development of competition across their school and into the community, and we are delighted to have been recognised for our success.
Our sporting achievements this year include:
Cross Country, Athletics, Handball, Boys Football, Girls Football, Multi-skills, OAA, Rounders, Dance, Rugby Skills, Basketball. We have won Gold and Silver medals and picked up a lot of certificates.
With a total of young people competing in local inter-school competitions this year, we are extremely proud of our pupils for their dedication to all aspects of school sport, including those young volunteers, leaders and officials who made our competitions possible.
As part of our application, we were asked to fulfil criteria in the areas of participation, competition, workforce and clubs, and we are pleased that the hard work of everyone at our school has been rewarded this year.
A special thanks to:
Elaine Smith, all the staff & parents at Duke Street, but most importantly the children.
We look forward to applying once again in 2019!
