Our pupils take part in a wide range of competitive sports events across the year and we can often garner enough children to form a team. Today, the school is bursting with pride because every member of Kingfishers volunteered to compete in a Cyclo-cross, cross country cycling challenge at Taunton Vale.
Aside from their usual perseverance, positivity and enthusiasm, it was absolutely astounding to see our children spread themselves out around the course, on every corner, slope and straight, to cheer each other on. As adults we were bursting with pride as they helped each other overcome slipped chains, dodgy gears, exhaustion and crashes.
One of our three teams came home with silver medals for achieving second place. We have ordered winners medals for every child who attended today, because our victory is shared!
