Shipham Sporting Success

A huge well done to our sporting superstars from Year 3 and 4 who competed in the Sedgemoor Schools Biathlon Championships at the weekend.  There were nearly 200 competitors taking part overall with our team of 8 from Shipham each running 500m and swimming 50m with their times combined for an overall score.  There was an amazing team spirit and unequalled support within the Shipham team and we are proud to announce that Agnes, Alex, Annabel, Emily, Joanna, Megan, Olive and Thea won the overall small school category.  Thea also won the Year 4 individual category.  We would like to thank all the parents who attended for their support and encouragement and a special thanks to Helen Faubel for her terrific job of co-ordinating the team and being their team manager on the day.  Their trophy will be proudly displayed in the school from Friday.
