The School Games Mark Trophy is a national award given to schools. This is as a result of the competitive sporting events that have taken place in and out of school. It recognises the inter school sports competitions that Westroyd take part in and also the Intra School sporting events eg Sports Day. It also takes into account our play leaders from our Year 4 and Year 5 class who are trained to play active games with our younger children at playtime. They are great role models.
Well done Westroyd!
Westroyd had their sports day on Friday, on the field at Farsley Celtic. All children in reception through to Year 3 took part. Children were divided equally into different coloured teams and they each took it in turns to complete various sporting tasks in over 10 different stations. The 'Grey Team' headed by Miss Goodall were the outright winners.
The weather held out for us and we had fantastic encouragement and support from all parents, carers and grandparents who came to spectate.
