Year 5 and 6 Indoor Athletics

A huge well done to the year five and six children, who represented Gatten and Lake at the Indoor Athletics festival yesterday at the Bay Academy. It has been a long time since we have taken part in events involving other schools and Mr Conway and Miss McGregor, who accompanied the group , said the children were superb ambassadors for the school. All of the children did amazingly well in their track and field events and showed great team spirit and determination.
