Five schools from around New Mills took part in the Sportshall Athletics competition today which was held at New Mills Leisure Centre.
The children took part in a variety of Track and Field events including Foam Javelin, Standing Triple Jump and Sit and Throw. The track events consisted of a series of sprints as pairs and in teams of four.
There was a great atmosphere in the hall with teams supporting each other throughout the various events and races.
Despite fielding a strong team, New Mills Primary were beaten into second place by a very strong team from Hayfield. They will go on to represent the New Mills Area in the Area Finals.
Mrs Fisher would like to say well done to all those who took part – behaviour and sportsmanship were excellent. Team captains, Sharnna and Ben, both in Year 6, are also thanked for their great leadership skills.
