Our team were amazing! They ran their socks off, threw further than they have ever thrown, jumped further than they have ever jumped and were just so impressive on the day. Everyone excelled themselves! Everyone gave that little bit extra!
We knew that we had been doing well on our events but were unaware of how the other schools were getting on in theirs. The top eight in this event go on to compete against each other in the Suffolk Finals on the 8th July. (TSM already have a team competing in the Swimming finals!)
When we got to the results at the end of the event, we weren’t expecting to be in the top 8. Last year, we were ranked 36th and as always we are up against big schools who have 180 children combined in their Year 5 and Year 6 with which to select a team from – we have 54!
And there it was… the result… we finished a superb 7th out of 64 schools. Wow! We are through to the Suffolk Finals. The 7th best school in Suffolk! I was so proud of the team and their achievement and so proud to be there to see their success. A huge thank you to those who came along to support and a huge thank you to Mr Childs who helps ensure these pupils are ready for competition!
I will remember today always – I am so proud of TSM!
