Amazing Achievements!

Monday 20 February 2023

Two achievements to celebrate this week.

First of all, Huey, one of our Reception friends, decided that he wanted to raise money for refugees. He had read a book about the journey of a young girl who is forced to become a refugee. He decided that he wanted to help children like this in the future so it didn’t happen again. He was especially concerned about the children affected by the earthquakes in Syria and Turkey.

He decided to challenge himself to cycle 10 laps of Moortown Park, that’s a lot of cycling for someone with little legs! He completed his challenge and has so far raised in excess of £400 – an amazing amount of money. Well done, Huey.

The second amazing achievement is from this young lady who we have seen before. Over the last three weekends, she has competed in the Yorkshire Swimming Championships. She has beaten four of her personal best times and won silver and bronze medals in the team events.

She is 20 seconds within the Yorkshire time for 11 year old girls, but is only just 10, and is ranked 13th within the UK for 200m breaststroke and 11th in the UK for 100m butterfly.  She is affectionately known as the ‘pocket rocket’ – watch this space; she will be famous one day.
