Tue 14th May 2019 : Super Ski-ing from Mead teams at Kent Schools Ski Race
Our Meadites did us proud at the Kent Schools Skiing Championships in Chatham on Sunday.
Two teams of children from The Mead took part in the event, with one team coming 4th and the other in 5th place in their categories. Considering there were 25 teams from Kent primary schools taking part in the competition this is an amazing achievement, especially as this was the first time any of our skiers had competed.
Parent Mrs Gemma James organised the teams participation in this non-school event and commented how proud of the children she was: "A very big well done to all the children. They skied their socks off and I was very proud of each and every one of them. Their attitude, effort and bravery (it's a big long slope and there were hundreds of people watching) was truly admirable."
Another parent who was at the event commented on the Mead team's participation and 'Growth-Mindset' attitude at the event: "All of them are a credit to their own courage, ability and determination to succeed. Despite some of them feeling nervous, they all had the grit and mind-set to know “you can do this” and for the second-round “you can do this even better this time”. Well done to them all. They were a credit to themselves and to the school."
