Although no medals were awarded to Toby Wiggin, Katie Mundy-Gill or Violet Walker I want to give them a mention for their attendance, perseverance in the heat and generally making Shropshire Proud! 

 

Well done!!

Bowbrook Archer Max Oakley visits a local school to talk about Archery.......

We have been fortunate this week to welcome in some visitors to school to share their knowledge of different sports and to enthuse us with how we can also try new disciplines.

First up, we welcomed Max Oakley, a Y10 student at our of our academy trust schools, the Grove in Market Drayton, who has big ambitions: he is aiming to represent team GB at the Los Angeles 2028 Olympics in archery! Taking time out from his training (6 days a week) as well as his studies, Max shared his journey with us and how he had come to be a master at his sport. Max regularly shoots targets from 70 metres away, which must take a huge amount of patience, skill and concentration. He shared that he had tried many sports, but that he just found his thing with Archery. This completely ties in with out vision for PE and school sport; we want our children to experience different sports and activities so that they leave us with one sport or game they want to pursue. Thank you Max for coming and all the best in your training! Here he is with head boy Josh, who is also a keen archer down in Church Stretton.

If you would like to have a go at archery, a couple of opportunities are coming up for our children. Bowbrook Archers (www.bowbrook-archers.co.uk) are hosting a ‘family have a go day’ on Saturday 9 April. Please check out the website for more information, and directions. ‘Start archery week’ is also being held between 14-22 May through Start Archery at various local locations, More information can be found on their website at www.start archery.co.uk.
