Welcome to Bishops Down
"Learning Today, Leading Tomorrow"
On Sunday, 12th May the Bishops Down Ski Team raced in the 2019 Kent Schools Championship and all did an amazing job.
This year Bishops Down entered 2 teams: Representing year 5 & 6 were Ella, Eva D, Alana and Ollie and representing year 4 were Tommie, Barnaby, Dylan and Eva R.
Credit goes to the year 5 and 6 pupils who all joined the team late on and raced in a very competitive ‘mixed senior primary' category. Considering these pupils only had a few weeks training, they should be very proud of their performance.
The year 4 team won a silver medal for a the 'mixed junior primary’ category.
Additionally, in the afternoon all teams are split up into 20 new teams based on their ability. These new teams then raced head to head in a dual slalom. Coincidentally Tommie and Eva were placed in a new team together and following this knock out competition their team secured a bronze medal, narrowly missing out on the silver. Great achievement!
They all did an amazing job and conducted themselves brilliantly. Mr M Pryor, Parent
