Emmaville Primary School

The Gateshead Athletics Festival at Gateshead International Stadium

30th June 2023

It was that time of year again, which we all look forward to at Emmaville: The Gateshead Athletics Festival! On Friday, we took a team of twenty-three athletes to compete against forty-eight other schools across thirty-four events at the fantastic Gateshead International Stadium. And what a day it was! Our children were amazing from start to finish in both their events and the way in which they conducted themselves. Every single Emmaville competitor gave their all, showing determination, ability and sportsmanship. Over the course of the day, Emmaville athletes won heats, semi-finals and finals, and eventual came away with eight medals; four gold and four silver.
