For those of you who have been following our schools recent achievements, you may have come across our application and nomination for the Comet Sports Awards – School of the Year. Having made the short list for being recognised as a school with many wonderful sporting achievements and successes throughout the year of 2013 we were invited to attend the award ceremony on Monday 17th February at the MBDA facilities in Stevenage.
Dressed to impress, Mrs Jenny Dingley, Mrs Jane Shaw, Mr Dudley Sendal and Mrs Toni Minson were privileged to join many wonderful Hertfordshire sporting heroes who were all there in hope of gaining acknowledgement for the wonderful achievements they had accomplished during 2013. After a little food and drink the ceremony was under way and all we could do was sit, watch and wait in anticipation.
Having watched the amazing variety of sporting categories and success stories cross the stage, our turn had arrived. With every digit crossed, including my toes, we waited to see what the results would be.
“This years, Comet Sports Awards, for School of the Year is…
Ardeley C of E Primary School.
Well done Ardeley children, teachers, volunteers and coaches. We are amazing and now have a glass trophy to add to our growing success story as a wonderful school!
Finally a very special thanks to Mr Green for filling in all the necessary paper work and helping us to gain this wonderful recognition for all that Ardeley has achieved.
