Well done everyone !
On Tuesday 2nd July, 24 children from years 5 and 6 represented Fitzmaurice at the Wiltshire School Games at Marlborough College.
In order to qualify for the county level competition, our swimming and QuadKids (athletics) teams first had to make it through the local cluster competition and then win the West Wiltshire competition.
Both teams performed exceptionally well, with the athletics team finishing a fantastic 7th out of the 16 schools taking part, and the swim team bringing home bronze medals.
Once the serious competition work was over the children had the opportunity to experience some fun activities at the ‘Athletes Village’ including sumo wresting, hoola hoops and the rowing machine challenge.
Well done to everyone who took part; we are very proud of the way you always do your best, whilst encouraging and supporting each other and showing great sportmanship too.
A big thank you to the parent helpers who came along on the day, and made the trip possible; and also to Miss Blake for inspiring and encouraging our children in their sporting activities.
