On Tuesday 3rd February 10 students from Year 7 travelled to Fenton Manor Sports Complex in Stoke on Trent to represent not only Nether Stowe School but the Lichfield and Burntwood District. On arrival, there was an opening ceremony with singers and dancers from local schools and speeches from VIP guests such as Emma Jackson an 800m runner for Great Britain. With schools there from all of the region the athletics competition was particularly tough but the students fought well to achieve some noticeable performances, finishing 6th and 9th respectably. It was a fantastic
experience for the students involved and they deserve plenty of praise for the effort and determination that they showed. Well done!
