There was an immense amount of work to be done to prepare the children for their events, not least a series of trials leading up to the children’s performances on the day.  Sincere thanks to Miss Knox, Miss Watson and Miss Jaremko for their respective roles in the event, and to the many parents who came along to the stadium to cheer the children on.  I hear that the loudest cheers in the whole stadium came from the Fellside contingent!
