Winners in Orienteering
Winners in Girls Basketball
Winners in Year 7 Dodgeball
Running multiple in-school competitions including football, netball, rowing, cross country, rounders, and athletics.
With lots of young people competing in local inter-school competitions this year, the school is extremely proud of its pupils for their dedication to all aspects of school sport, including those young volunteers, leaders and officials who made the competitions possible.
As part of the application CDS were asked to fulfil criteria in the areas of participation, competition, workforce and clubs, and are pleased that the hard work of everyone at the school has been rewarded this year.
A special thanks to Mr Allen and all of the PE Department for their continued pursuit of creating opportunities for CDS pupils to compete in.
