Lincolnshire Sainsbury’s Winter County Finals 2015.
This year’s Winter County finals took place on Wednesday 4th March at Grantham Meres Leisure Centre. As a school we were competing in the High 5 Netball finals and the Year 5/6 and Year 3/4 swimming finals. Also taking place were the County finals for Secondary schools in badminton, volleyball and hockey, as well as New Age Kurling. Throughout the day Ross Davenport, former Olympic swimmer, who won 4 Commonwealth Games medals and has competed in the Athens, Bejing and London Olympic Games, was on hand to talk to athletes, sign autographs and generally inspire everyone.
At the opening and closing ceremonies we were entertained by musicians and dancers, as well as an inspirational speech by Ross. As part of the opening ceremony the six Sainsbury’s School Games pledges were read. This year we were asked if we could read two of them. Felicity read on behalf of the primary competitors while I read on behalf of the teachers and managers. Individual reports follow.
