Rugby League with Gateshead Storm
Recently the school have created a link with the local rugby league team called Gateshead Storm. We have had used this link to get expert coaching within this area within an after school club that has been running since after Easter. If anyone is interested in starting to play rugby league then here is all the relevant information.
We sent 21 children to a local Rugby League competition. They formed three teams and all of the teams tried their hardest and were fantastic ambassadors for our school. Two teams qualified for the final and one team missed out by one point. The good news for Lingey House was it was an all Lingey Final which meant that Lingey House were the winners!!!
Rugby League at St James Park
As part of Magic Weekend we were invited to a Sky Try Rugby League event at St James Park. This involved a range of primary school children playing in a festival atmosphere to launch the event. This was a fantastic opportunity for the children to participate in a sporting event on such a fantastic stage. We even got to meet some professional rugby players and got a change to hold the trophy won at the end of the Super League Season.I would like to thank Rob and all the staff at Gateshead Storm for making this possible.
On Tuesday the 4th of April 18 students ranging from year 1 up to year 5 took part in the Dance Festival held at The Sage in Gateshead. They have been working hard since Christmas to learn and perfect their dance and they did fantastic and were a credit to our school.
Well done to everyone who took part.
