Brockwell Junior School were crowned champions for the third year running, after an incredible team performance.
Held at Queen’s Park Sports Centre, the Sportshall Athletics Finals were split into three categories across the two days. The events comprised both Track and Field activities, including Speed Bounce, Long Jump, Chest Push, Relays and Javelin to name a few.
On Tuesday 6th March 2018, the Championship Finals welcomed seven teams from across Chesterfield as well as a further three teams who took part in the Small School Finals. The atmosphere was electric with all teams showing great sportsmanship throughout the event.
“Amazing day! Everybody was showing team spirit.” Jessica, Old Hall Junior School.
With results just points apart throughout the event, it was hard to call who would take the Gold.
However, just pushing through that final hurdle was Brockwell Junior School who won first place in the Championships, followed very closely behind by joint Silver winners, Brampton Primary School and Hollingwood Primary School.
“I really enjoyed doing something different. I felt it was really well organised. It is good for the kids who struggle academically, it gives them a chance to shine.” Mrs Parkinson of Hasland Junior School.
The Small School Finals were victoriously won by Cutthorpe Primary School, followed proudly by Temple Normanton Junior Academy.
Theo, of Temple Normanton Junior Academy announced, “We should have more sporting events like this. It is so much fun!”
Wednesday 7th March 2018 saw the Sportshall Cup Finals with five teams competing for the Gold medal. After a tough but exciting few rounds, it was Brockwell Junior School who took the Gold.
“I felt the event went really well. It was well organised and was really nice to do a ceremony at the end.” Spectating parent.
The event would not have been possible without the amazing help shown by staff, parents and carers, we would like to give a massive thank you to all who contributed and helped out.
A special thank you goes out to the sports leaders of Chesterfield College and Parkside Community School who volunteered their time to help run the event.
Well done to all the schools that competed in our Sportshall Athletics Final and massive congratulations to Brockwell Junior School and Cutthorpe Primary School who go on to represent Chesterfield at the Derbyshire Schools’ County Finals in April.
