Youngsters from Woodlands Primary School are living proof that if you work hard enough, you will get results.

That is the verdict of staff from the school who have spoken of their pride after pupils bagged a bronze medal at the recent South Yorkshire Sainsbury’s School Games.

Woodlands finished third in the Year 5-6 athletics at Clifton Park in Rotherham, despite missing two of their team through illness.

“I am so proud of the children who took part in the event and the training that has led up to it,” said the school’s PE coordinator Mr Culshaw.

“They have given 100 per cent and fought for their position in the competition.

“We cannot believe how successful they have been.

“It doesn’t matter who, what or where you are from, if you want something bad enough and you aim high and work hard, you can and will achieve it.”

Woodlands secured their place in the regional finals by qualifying at the preliminary round held at the Keepmoat Stadium.
