Students produced some excellent performances with several sportshall records being broken. Westholme had 31 athletes taking part, made up of girls and boys in Years 5 and 6. As usual, they competed with great team spirit and determination. We were awarded with 14 medals in total in events including speed bounce, javelin, 3 lap and obstacle relay. Congratulations must also go to Christie Sturgess who set a new championship record in the U11 speedbounce event which secured her the gold medal.


Well done to everyone who took part and thank you to all schools for making it another successful event – see you again next year!
