Gateshead Primary Schools Athletics Festival event will take place as follows:
Friday 26th June 2015 @ Gateshead International Stadium – 9:00am – 4:00pm
The Gateshead School Sport Partnership are very pleased and proud to inform you that once again this year’s festival is full to capacity. We have, as usual, had an amazing response from our primary schools. 48 different school teams and approximately 1,000 athletes will be running, jumping and throwing their way through the day. Pupils from both Year 3/4 and 5/6 will compete as individuals and school teams to win the right to be crowned as Gateshead Champions and/or improve their personal best in their respective events.
The school team winners will progress to the County Finals that take place on July 7th at Silksworth Sports Complex in Sunderland. The weather forecast predicts rain but nothing will dampen the spirits or enjoyment of the athletes, schools and the many volunteers who make this amazing event possible. Young Sports Leaders from 4 of our Secondary Schools alongside and a very dedicated team of local volunteers will assist at the event and are instrumental to its success.
The cheers will be heard far and wide around this iconic International Athletics venue as athletes display great fetes of determination and resilience to be the best that they can be in their chosen events.
This is one of over 200 events organised and delivered by the Gateshead School Sport Partnership and further details can be found on their website http://www.gatesheadssp.org.uk/
