Walsall School’s Cross Country Final

This evening three children, from Key Stage 2, have represented Rushall in the Walsall cross country finals. Following the success of Taiyah, Jack and Alfie in the previous competition, they were each selected to compete in the final.

The race took place at Beacon Primary School in Willenhall, with the runners having to complete two laps of their playing field. All of our children did amazingly! Taiyah finished the race in 12th position and now proceeds to the county final, representing Walsall. Jack and Alfie both ran extremely well, against some very strong runners, just missing out on a place in the county finals.

Thanks again to Alfie (Y6), Taiyah (Y5) and Jack (Y5).

Sports Relief 2020

Across school today, our pupils have been raising awareness of Sports Relief. By having fun and getting active, we have been fundraising to improve the lives of individuals in the UK and across the rest of the world. The children and staff all came to school dressed in their sports clothing.

This morning, all classes stopped their lessons to complete our ‘Welly Walk’. The children walked, jogged and some even ran twice around the school field. It was a thoroughly enjoyable event for all.

Sports Relief wristbands have also been on sale all day today. Here are some of the children from Reception who have purchased a band. There are still a few bands remaining. If you would like to purchase one, please see Miss Underwood in Year 2.
