A Sigglesthorne school girl is through to the final of a design competition run by The School Sport Partnership (SSP) to promote the Humber School Games.
School children across the Humber region were asked to design a banner promoting one or more of the SSP’s Spirit of the Humber School Games values which are: passion; respect; honesty; teamwork; determination; and self-belief.
The design by Sigglesthorne Church of England Primary Academy pupil Isabel, age 7, was judged as the winner within the Bridlington Sports Partnership cluster. Isabel has now been invited to attend the SSP’s Summer Award ceremony together with the winners from the other partnership clusters, where four winners for the Humber region will be announced.
The winning designs will be used to produce large-scale banners which will be displayed at the Games on Friday 11 July in Hull. An overall winner will then be voted for via Twitter.
Jacqui Grant, Head of School at Sigglesthorne CE Primary Academy says “We’re really proud of Isabel and all of the other children who put their time and effort in to entering the competition. It’s very exciting to think that Isabel’s design, which she based around ‘determination,’ might be displayed at the Humber School Games for all to see. I’m sure she will have a wonderful time at the Award Ceremony.”
Sigglesthorne Church of England Primary Academy is part of the Ebor Academy Trust together with eight other schools across Yorkshire. Nearby primary schools, Alderman Cogan’s and Marfleet are also set to join the Trust in September this year, with others expected to join over the next few months, taking the total to 20.
