St John Bosco Catholic Primary School

We brought 28 children over to Wolverhampton University to compete across 4 different sports representing Sandwell in the Black Country Games. Our children had performed well to qualify for some of the events and our reputation as a strong sporty school with well behaved children earned us some extra invites too! We had a group of 4 children from year 6 competing in an aquathon, which is a 50m swim followed by an 800m run, completed as a relay. These children did really well and finished 4th.

Meanwhile, our girls’ cricket team played 4 matches and got better and better with each game. Simran in particular was excellent with the bat, scoring lots of runs. The girls were delighted in the end to finish 3rd overall and win bronze medals. Finally, we had two separate groups of children doing a series of multi-skills challenges, testing their running, jumping and throwing ability. This was an extremely well contested event with 18 different teams. However, the children were exceptional and also achieved 3rd place and bronze medals – a fantastic achievement.

A big well done to all involved as you competed well and as always, maintained our high standards of behaviour. A massive thank you to Pat, Gerry and Mrs Kaur for their support, coming along with us. It was a truly memorable day!
