 We Won!

On Friday 27th September we took part in Stand Up for Derbyshire. The aim of the day was to be as active as possible throughout the day and take part in lots of active learning. In the morning the school took part in a wake and shake in the hall. People from SHAPE Partnership visited all the Chesterfield and North East Derbyshire schools throughout the day and because they were so impressed with our whole school wake and shake they announced us the winners of Stand Up for Derbyshire! We have received a prize box filled with loads of TTS equipment! The children were very excited to receive our prize! We want to thank SHAPE Partnership for letting us get involved in such a great day!

Cyclocross Championships

Joseph Throp from Year 3 has taken part in the Regional Championship cycling race. He represented St Andrews on Saturday 1st December in the Under 9 Boys competition at Whitworth Park in Matlock. He had to cope with some horrible conditions as all the roads were very wet and muddy. He was 3rd for the first few laps then unfortunately, due to the hideous conditions, slipped on a root, causing him to have to stop. He managed to keep on going and came 5th overall! Well done Joseph! We are very proud of Joseph for representing St Andrews and wish him all the best in his next race!  Click here to see Joseph's certificate.
