We were fortunate enough to be invited back to Theale Green for their annual Alternative Olympics festival. The aim was to look for 'sporty' children and offer them a chance to represent the school for the first time through sport.
As you can see from the picture above, our children all came away with a medal. The year 6 team winning gold and our year 5 team winning bronze medals. All the children competed in archery, boccia, seated volleyball and indoor curling with great enthusiasm and skill.
A true credit to the school. Well done!
