Four of our amazing Wellow athletes were selected to represent Test Valley in the annual Hampshire Schools Cross-Country Championships this week. This took place on Tuesday in Basingstoke. Louie, Eve, Eleanor and Esme ran in the under 12s races, over 2000m; this is twice the distance of the Mountbatten Cross Country races! All four of them showed real focus, determination and resilience in tough races, against stiff competition. Congratulations to all of you!
Eve and Eleanor achieved particular success in their race, with Eve coming a superb 1st place and Eleanor coming 3rd, despite losing both her shoes during the race! This was a fantastic achievement and means that both Eleanor and Eve will now represent Hampshire in their next competition.
During January and February, our Year 5 and 6 Football team competed in the football league competitions, as well as the football festival, at Mountbatten School.

The Wellow team played 5 games in total, winning 3 and losing 2. Everyone played brilliantly as a team, with goalkeeper, defence and midfield battling for the ball to give attacking opportunities.
