On Tuesday four of our year six pupils represented Tibberton Primary School at the Primary County Finals competing in the New Age Kurling tournament. They qualified for the final earlier this year, which was an amazing achievement in itself.
They then went on to finish in eighth place out of eleven other schools! As ever, their behaviour was impeccable and sportsmanship, tremendous. So much so, together with the other schools in the Burton Borough School Games area team, won the “Spirit of the Games Award”.
To gain the award, all teams at each event voted for the area team that had shown some or all of these values, determination, teamwork, honesty, respect and self-belief. All the votes were then added together for the overall winner.
Our team even managed to get a photo with Danielle Brown MBE, Paralympic gold medalist (archery), which finished the day off very nicely.
Great team work Tibberton.
