GSF 2017

The Griffin Sports Festival was held on Wednesday 27th September at NCS. All 12 schools from the Griffin Schools Trust came together to compete in 6 different sports including duathlon, orienteering, handball, archery, curling and sitting volleyball. The day began with a parade of the athletes where we read our pledge “We promise to respect other teams, staff members and ourselves. We will try our best to succeed but show dignity and grace whatever the outcome”. We were also given GSF t-shirts, bags and water bottles and met Paralympic champions Danielle Brown MBE and Clare Cunningham! After an amazing day, we achieved 2nd place for how well we competed against our pledge and 4th place overall, missing out on the podium by just 6 points. We are immensely proud of our team.
