Devon Winter Games 2018

On the 22nd of March 15 Schools from Plymouth travelled up to the Devon Winter School Games held at a rather muddy Torbay Leisure Centre.

The all-day event brought an early start for our athletes, but this didn''t effect their excitement to get going. The events being competed in were cross country, volleyball, netball, handball and table tennis. There were also multiple other activities going on around the venue including change for life activities, arts and crafts, taekwondo, football, BMX, rugby league, fencing, taiko drumming and bounce.

Congratulations to all the teams who made the finals and put in all their hard work! A special congratulations to our Cross Country teams; year 3&4 girls from Bickleigh Down for taking home the Bronze medal, Leigham who achieved 3rd spot in the year 3/4 as well  as Compton who achieved a bronze in the year 5/6 boys.

Well done to Eggbuckland CC for achieving the Silver medal in the Volleyball. It was an extremely close match with one point deciding the Gold medal!

Special 'Spirit of the Games awards' were given to Charlotte from St. Edwards for determination, as she ran most of the race with no shoes after they fell off in the mud! Also to Ella from Bickleigh Down who achieved the Teamwork award for the day.

Although it was cold weather there were plenty of red smiling faces throughout the day! Each athelte from every event was a credit to their school and to the PSSP, you should be proud!

We were pleased to welcome England international volleyball player Ellie Cranch who was on hand to sign autographs and present awards to the young athletes.

Great Stuff from everyone who attended and a big thankyou to the young leaders of City College for helping out!
