Quad Kids Qualify for Hampshire Games!

Congratulations to our Year 5/6 Quad Kids Team who came first in their competition against other Basingstoke schools and will now represent Basingstoke and Deane at the Hampshire Games in June.

8 Year 5/6 pupils went to The Vyne school to compete against 5 other Basingstoke schools in the annual Quad Kids competition.  They had to complete a total of 5 events, 75m sprint, 600m long distance, howler throw, long jump and a team relay. All performances were outstanding with everyone winning their sprint heat and the team relay. There were also some other notable performances including 2 girls winning their long distance heat and the boys winning their howler throw.  The team work and sportsmanship shown by all 8 children was brilliant and we now look forward to the Hampshire Games in June (some serious training starts now!)

Congratulations to the whole team, Zane, Jimmy, Louis, Joseph, Sienna, Libby, Grace and Alice and thank you to the parents/grandparents who provided transport and supported the children at the event.
