Olympic fever grips New Hall School

Students from New Hall School in Chelmsford, enjoyed a super Saturday of sport last weekend and got themselves firmly into the Olympic spirit ahead of the 2012 Olympic Games.

Students at New Hall School, Bright World’s partner, independent boarding and day school for 3-18 year olds in Chelmsford, took part in the annual school sports day and competed against each other, in their school houses, to come out on top in a variety of sports; including hurdles, discus, javelin, individual and relay races.



Joy Hopkinson, Headteacher of New Hall Senior School said, “The Olympic Games have inspired young people to embrace sport. At New Hall School we share the same message; that sport can be for everyone, whatever your talents, and with dedication you can achieve

 Shaun Winsor, Director of Sport at New Hall School said, “The four school houses all desperately want to win the overall sports day trophy and at New Hall a sense of good natured rivalry is encouraged, this year we are delighted that Pole House won the trophy and we commend everyone for their enthusiasm and effort. We look forward to seeing some of our young sport stars at Olympic games in the future.”

Meanwhile riders and helpers at the New Hall Riding for the Disabled group embraced the Olympic spirit with their own mini Games. With financial help from the Essex Legacy 2012 Celebrations Fund, nearly 40 adult and child riders and the same number of volunteers, were able to enjoy a series of fun competitions at their base at Rawreth Equestrian Centre.



John Poole, Acting Chairman of the Group, which has been running for more than 40 years and includes volunteer pupils from New Hall School said, “We had a fantastic three days of events. Everyone had been training hard and the result was well worth all the work. It was smiles all round.”

Sinead Storey, a year 7 pupil at New Hall School said, “The Riding for the Disabled group is part of the New Hall Voluntary Service. Being a part of this enables me to work with, and serve, the local community which is an important part of life at New Hall School.”
