2017 District Sports Champions …
Tuesday 11th July saw the yearly District Sports event. Although the weather was not quite what we are used to, the competitors shone as they participated in sprints, long distance races, relays and field events. After narrowly losing out last year, we have been pushing hard in daily training sessions to get the Districts shield back! After a successful afternoon, packed with achievements and positivity, Grove Wood were eventually crowned District sports champions 2017! Congratulations to all involved and a huge thank you to the staff for supporting in the lead up to this event. Without such dedication from staff and commitment from our wonderful pupils we would have not achieved such success!
