It's great to hear about students' achievements outside of school as well as their successes in the classroom.
We are very proud of Hollie in Year 10 who will be representing CHSG in the London Youth Games.
As a sports scholarship student, I’ve been competing in cross-country since I started in Year 7 until COVID-19 hit and it was cancelled for two years.
In Year 10, it was my first opportunity to return to competing.
We went to the field on a cold morning but luckily we were warmly dressed and were ready. It felt like a forever wait for our run to start, but finally it was our year group. On the start line, there was a lot of hustling and bustling but once we heard the gun shot, we were off. By lap number two, we were all exhausted; however, I found that extra energy to power through and go for a sprint finish.
I was congratulated on the line and handed a letter meaning that I qualified for the London Youth Games!
I’m very proud of this achievement given that I had taken a two-year gap and I look forward to competing in the London Youth Games representing Carshalton High School for Girls!” Holly 10G2
