Rose Hill Primary School, Marple has fought of competition from nine other Greater Manchester Schools to win the School commitment to PE and School Sport category.
The awards hosted by Chelsea Norris of BBC Radio Manchester were held at Old Trafford Cricket Ground on the 17th November.
Former Manchester United defender Gary Neville was a speaker at the event.
Councillor Dean Fitzpatrick, Stockport Council’s Cabinet member for Education said:
“It’s fantastic that Rose Hill have won this award and I congratulate the school’s staff, parents and volunteers on this wonderful achievement.”
Helen Mastrolonardo the School’s Headteacher said:
“We were absolutely delighted that the enormous effort, from everyone in school and the support from parents, carers and volunteers, in our community, has been recognized at such a high level. Our children were particularly proud when they realized that they had won a competition involving schools across the whole of Greater Manchester.”
We ensure that every class is timetabled for two hours of PE each week and we offer an extensive extracurricular programme. Sport’s Ambassadors from each year are timetabled to deliver games and activities during breaks, with PE also supporting other subjects via programmes like “Active Maths” and every class completes the mile challenge three times per week.”
