Sporting Superstars at Barkston Ash
Kevin Sinfield MBE – Honorary Sporting Superstar
Legendary Leeds Rhinos captain Kevin Sinfield MBE has recently undertaken an amazing challenge of running seven marathons in seven days from 1st – 7th December in support of his former club and international team mate Rob Burrow and to raise awareness and funds for the MND Association. He has raised over £2.4 million pounds! Barkston Ash Catholic Primary School salutes you, Kevin, for this incredible effort and would like to make you an honorary sporting superstar of Barkston Ash! Well done, Kevin!

Oliver Stoney – Year 4

Oliver loves playing for South Milford FC and is becoming an excellent player. He usually plays on the right wing but also takes his turn in goal.

In addition to his footballing talent, he has also completed his first junior warrior. Oliver loved competing and finished in the top five for his group. Well done, Oliver!

Isabella Taylor – Reception
Isabella started swimming lessons at the beginning of the year before lockdown. She can already swim all the way across Tadcaster pool without touching the floor and is even starting to swim underwater. Well done, Isabella! Fingers crossed lessons will be able to start again soon.

Ruben O’Mahony – Year 5
Ruben is a brilliant footballer and played a key role in Ulleskelf U10s recently becoming tournament champions. With the score locked at 4-4 in the final against Ackworth, Ruben scored the winning goal to give Ulleskelf a 5-4 victory and their hands on the trophy. Well done, Ruben!

Isabel Neale - Year 6
Isabel is a wonderful dancer. Alongside studying ballet, tap and modern jazz at the Bettany School of Dance, Izzy is also a member of the dance school’s competition team. She competes at four dance festivals a year. The last competition in the October half term was slightly different to normal as it took place remotely due to Covid. Izzy enjoyed the festival and proudly gained a first place in her ballet section. Well done, Izzy!
It is now back to Zoom lessons as Izzy prepares for her next graded exams in January and perfects her dance routines ready for the next competition in February! Good luck, Izzy. We look forward to hearing about your future successes.

Eliza Magee – Year 3
Eliza has shown great determination and perseverance to develop into a fantastic swimmer. Eliza has been for swimming lessons for a number of years but just before lockdown, Eliza moved to Selby swimming club and achieved her level 5 badge in just a few lessons. Well done, Eliza! I am sure this will be the first of many badges.
