Derbyshire School Games 2016 - singing competition entries and results

Gamesley Primary School Choir

Gamesley Primary School Choir.

Gamesley Primary School have won the Derbyshire School Games 2016 singing competition with their entry Extraordinary.

Their original song, which was composed with help from students, impressed the three-strong judging panel from Derbyshire Sport, who felt it 'reflected the spirit of the games perfectly'.

Their reward will be to perform at the opening ceremony of the 2016 Derbyshire School Games Event at Mount St Mary's College on July 5, where some of the best young sporting talent in the county will be on show.

Highly commended for their efforts were Wilsthorpe Community School, who sang Chase The Sun and Dronfield Junior School, who performed Whatever I Do.

"The standard of entries was very high across the board and it was a very difficult process to pick out a winner," said Lewis Adams, Sport Development Officer with responsibility for the Derbyshire School Games.

"We felt Gamesley's song was a motivating song that was very well rehearsed and delivered and was the best fit for the school games opening ceremony."

Rebecca Towner-Yates, head of the choir, added: "Gamesley School Choir are delighted to have won such a prestigious competition, particularly when the quality of the other entries was so high.

"We can't wait to sing at the games and hope that we can inspire the athletes to be Extraordinary!"

Gamesley were one of 14 entries from across the county – with both primary and secondary schools represented.
