Blyth Academy Sport Leaders 2017

11 Sport Leaders from The Blyth Academy helped to run the athletics event at Monkton Stadium organised by the Blyth and Bedlington School Sport Programme. The competition involved 450 Year 5 and 6 children taking part in athletics events including running, jumping and throwing.

The leaders had a vital role to play: helping to organise the children, recording results, setting out equipment and in some cases running an activity themselves. We received many compliments from the staff of the primary schools attending as to how well they had performed. They were superb ambassadors for, and a credit to, The Blyth Academy, showing a positive attitude and enthusiastically putting into practice skills they had developed in school. Some of the leaders are leaving school this year to go to either university or an apprenticeship, and we would like to thank them for their help over the years and wish them well in their future careers.
