St Andrew’s Primary celebrates athletic success!


St Andrew’s Primary School, Fontmell Magna, returned triumphant after competing in the Dorset Athletics tournament at Gillingham School.
On Tuesday 17th January, St Andrew’s Primary pupils participated in a physically demanding competition that required them to compete in numerous athletic events that tested their agility, strength and fitness as well as their perseverance and courage. The tenacious young people endeavoured to succeed in events including relays, speed bounce, triple jump, long jump, vertical jump, obstacle course, chest push and javelin; and were delighted to emerge victorious!
Headteacher Debbie Brown said ‘Watching our young people thrive in this competitive environment was an absolute pleasure and highlighted so many talented individuals – many of whom lacked confidence and doubted their own capabilities. Yet they prevailed!’
Winning the Dorset Athletics tournament propels the children of St Andrew’s into the County Athletics final, hosted at Purbeck School later this year. They cannot wait to shine once again!
