On Wednesday 24th June we held a Sports Awards evening for the schools across the Purbeck Partnership. Seventy students across the partnership and their parents were invited to receive awards related to Commitment, Leadership, Dedication to sports inside and outside of school and Achievement. It was also lovely to see a number of Headteachers present from the Primary Schools.
Our guest speaker for the evening was International athlete Serita Shone who gave a presentation about her life so far and how she bounced back from a broken back in a bobsleigh accident in 2011. She was an inspiration to the students and hopefully they have taken something from her experiences and can apply that to their own lives to push themselves on that bit further.
The evening was an outstanding success with some lovely speeches about each recipient, it is clear that we have some excellent performers in a number of sports in the Purbecks.
“Thank you so much for a wonderful awards evening last night. What a wonderful way to celebrate our young sports stars. Thank you so much for organising this and for everything you have done during the year to encourage all things sporty! Really very much appreciated by Stoborough School.” – Mrs Corbin Stoborough at Headteacher.
I look forward to continuing to work with these students in years to come.
School Sports Coordinator
