A Sigglesthorne school girl has come out on top in 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 Kemp, age 7, was announced as the winning entry at the Humber School Games last week. Isabel’s design, along with the other three finalists’ creations, was printed as a large-scale banner and displayed at the sporting event. The winner was decided by Twitter poll which saw Isabel’s design bagging over two-thirds of the votes.
Isabel attended the games with her parents and Sigglesthorne’s Head of School teacher and PE Coordinator, where she got to watch some of the sporting action and saw her banner on display.
Jacqui Grant, Head of School at Sigglesthorne CE Primary Academy said “We’re really proud that Isabel’s design, which she based around ‘determination,’ was displayed at the Humber School Games for all to see and has now been chosen as a worthy winner. It’s great that we get to keep one of Isabel’s banners which is now proudly displayed in school!”
Sigglesthorne Church of England Primary Academy is part of the Ebor Academy Trust together with nine other schools across Yorkshire. Nearby primary schools, Alderman Cogan’s and Marfleet are also set to join the Trust over the summer, with others expected to join over the next few months.
