Following their Gold Kite Mark for outstanding achievement in school sport and leadership, Greenfield Community College were again riding high after picking up another award.  They were nominated in the category of “Secondary School Contribution to P.E. and School Sport”, at the County Durham Sport & Physical Activity Awards, on Friday 20th September.   The awards ceremony was held at Spennymoor Leisure Centre and was a great success for all involved.
It was a chance to see the very best our region has to offer from volunteers to coaches, sports individuals and teams.   There were also nominations for Rubi Alderson and Courtnie Mills, both from Greenfield,  in the “Young Volunteer of the Year” and “Young Sporting Achievement of the Year” categories.  The standard of competition that spanned across all age groups, was extremely high and all involved should be very proud of their achievements in being nominated.
Greenfield  Community College claimed victory in their group but students Rubi & Courtnie missed out on taking the awards for their respective groups as they were up against formidable opposition.  The Young Sporting Achievement award went to Amy Tinkler from Bishop Auckland, who is a Great Britain International Gymnast and travels the world with the national squad.
The evening was capped off by an appearance from guest speaker, renowned sports coach, strategist and motivator Steve Black.  Steve has worked with Sunderland AFC, Newcastle United, Wales RFU and Jonathon Edwards to name but a few.
Special thanks to Barbara Davis and the rest of the Greenfield teachers who were involved in the awards ceremony.  Without their hard work and on-going dedication to school sport, none of the success we see today would be possible. Thanks to you all and keep up the good work.
