Infant Multi-Skills competition – November 2019

10 year 2 children took part in a multi skills competition at Highworth Grammar School. They competed against other schools from the Ashford area in a variety of activities. These included speed bounce, chest throw, hit the stumps and the javelin. All of the children had great team spirit and they all tried their best. Well done!
