On Saturday 17th June our KS2 athletics team competed in the Cotswold Shield Athletics event at the Prince of Wales stadium in Cheltenham.
The children competed brilliantly in both track and field events, against 5 other schools from the Gloucestershire area. Tewkesbury C of E came top in the individual races winning or coming second in many races. The relay events were closely fought for first and second place. After a tense announcement, the results came in with just one point in it for first place between Tewkesbury and Lechlade school.
After the closest Cotswold Shield for many years Tewkesbury C of E Athletics team were awarded second place overall, after a fantastic competition. Congratulations to all our competitors and a huge thank you to all parents, friends and family who came to support the event on such a warm day!
A shining example of sportsmanship shown by all who competed!
