Two Royston schools awarded for sporting commitment
TWO Royston schools were awarded podium finishes for their commitment to sport - with Roman Way First securing gold and Greneway bronze - at a county wide event.
They received the nod at the Hertfordshire Sports Partnership Service to Sport Awards 2011 with the schools awarded for outstanding PE lessons and their development of links with the community.
Emma Edwards, headteacher of Roman Way School was thrilled to win first place and thanked her dedicated staff.
She said: “This award means a great deal to the staff and children of Roman Way as sport is a natural and embedded part of our school day now.
“This is thanks to the Sports Partnership and the schools dedicated teachers, not to mention the enthusiasm of the children.
