On Tuesday, St Bede’s took 40 pupils to represent Redditch in the Worcestershire School Games, competing in Boccia, Swimming, and Athletics. These 3 teams had already won the District Round, which meant the standard would be high! The swimmers did really well, especially with us having Year 5’s competing against Year 6’s! The KS2 team finished 4th overal,l but only missed out on 3rd place by a couple of points! Well done to Owen, Oliver, Mikey, George, Liam, Hayden, Ellie, Grace, Frankie, Niamh, Victoria, Amelie and Ruby for all their hard work and to Mr Roberts for coaching them! The KS3 Boccia team, led by Miss Stewart, were really up for the competition. Narrowly losing their first game, they then fought bravely, winning all their remaining games. This meant that they won the event and claimed the Gold medal! A huge congratulations to Nathan, Mason, Tayibah and Sam for their achievement! We also then had Year 7 and Year 8 Super 6 athletic teams competing at the Ryland centre. Led by Mr Stenning, pupils were eager to show what they were made of against the best teams in the county. The Year 7’s did really well and managed to finish 2nd overall!! Well done to James, Rio, Lewis, Riley, George, Preston, Hallie, Danni, Olivia, Julia, Eden and Poppy for all their efforts, they deserved the Silver and hopefully next year they can improve. The Year 8 Super 6 team, again, did their absolute best and manged to win the competition! Picking up the Gold medal is a real credit to their hard work and commitment to athletics this year and really does prove that practice makes perfect! Well done to Santos, Tom, Stan, Reuben, Fin, Tom, Lucy, Aoibhe, Carmena, Mia, Evah and Eleanor for all their hard work!
