On Wednesday 11th July the Kielder Challenge team were at the South Yorkshire School Games Finals. The Kielder (adventure) challenge focuses on inclusion and team work. The Kielder team is a group of eight students who work working together to support each other and complete a variety of challenges. Once again Notre Dame won the competition. As always the team worked extremely well together, ensuring everyone was included in whatever role they had to play. We are extremely proud of each of them.
Meanwhile, Lauren of Y10 has been invited to compete for English Schools at throwing the javelin in the SIAB (Schools International Athletics Board) Home Countries' Track and Field International in Grangemouth, Scotland on 21st July. This is a fantastic agreement for Lauren, which came as a result of throwing a personal best of 43.94m at the ESAA (English Schools Athletic Association) athletics competition in Birmingham at the Alexander stadium on Friday 13th July. Good luck Lauren!
