On your Marks...Get Set...Go!!!!!

Monkleigh School

Our amazing school has certainly shone this week with their sporting achievements! Last Thursday Eden, Lexi, Georgia Emily and Erin travelled to Torquay to represent North Devon in the Devon Winter Games. (Cross Country event). In a field of nearly 90 runners, Eden came 1st and after a long nervous wait we were delighted to hear that Monkleigh Primary School took the honours of 1st Team in Devon! Wow! Such an achievement. Thank you to Mrs Amanda Reeves for travelling down with our team.

 
 Early Sunday morning bought our next challenge....
 We had 7 teams competing in the Gymnastics competition at Falcons Gym*. In only our 2nd year of competing in this field, we are very proud to say that we took 3 rd in the U9’s Boys team. Percy, Ernie Barnie and Archie.
 We also came 3 rd in our U7 mixed team. Joe, Millie, Josie and Isabelle. 
                We are very proud of all our squad!
  U11 Girls – Lexi, Summer, Daisy, Isla K U9 Boys – Percy, Ernie, Barnie, Archie U9 Girls – Megan, Michelle, Ella, Mia, Shavonne U9 Mixed – Ronnie, Scottie, Flora, Karina U7 Girls – Sophia, Flo, Eva, Tallulah U7 Mixed (1) – Joe, Millie, Josie, Isabelle U7 Mixed (2) – Barnie, Genevieve, Elsie, Daisy
