St Cuthbert Mayne Catholic Primary School in Cranleigh triumphed over four other Surrey schools in the Godalming District Primary School Confederation, to take home the District Sports shield.
Children from Years 3, 4, 5 and 6 competed in Hurdles, Sprint, Long Distance, Throwing and Long Jump in what proved to be an extremely close final with only two points between first and second place – the competition throughout was very intense with many exciting sprint finishes. St Cuthbert Mayne won in the boys overall and Year 3 competition groups to solidify their victory.
The school last won the accolade in 2010 and following a focus on increasing pupil activity in recent years including development of the all-weather playground and a Daily Mile track, combined with KS2 athletics training PE sessions and the Junior Park Run, the children were well prepared going into the competition.
The well-organised and highly anticipated annual event, held at Charterhouse School athletics track on Tuesday, 9th July this year, is the result of the tenacity and hard work of Mrs Helen Duke, ably supported on the day by volunteers including students from Godalming College.
St Cuthbert Mayne is a single-form entry co-educational primary school in the diocese of Arundel and Brighton. Our children receive a Catholic education which enables them to fulfil their spiritual, academic, intellectual, physical, emotional and social potential. Christ is at the heart of all that we do and every decision we make is based on what is in the best interest of our children. As well as the recent investment in the playground we also have a Wrap Around Care Club for busy families. Please contact us to arrange a visit or come to one of our Open Days.
