On Wednesday 27th November we were invited to the Southend Activity Awards ceremony at the Tickfield Centre. Our KS1 3 Tees Cricket team had been nominated for KS1 team of the year for getting to the Essex Finals, where they came 3rd . The evening was organised by Active Life. The awards were presented by the Mayor of Southend & Lions Rotary Club. The children were very excited and proud when Hamstel Infant School was called out and they went to collect the award. We shared the award with Temple Sutton’s KS1 gym team.
One of the children was sporting a ‘limited edition’ Blue Peter Badge. He was awarded this after his parents nominated him for trying a new sport – 3 Tees Cricket!
It was a lovely evening and well deserved by the team. Thank you to Mrs Snashall and Mrs Walker for all their hard work with coaching and supporting the team.
We are already anticipating exciting stories about the next round of sporting activities next term.
