Lovers' Lane awarded special 'Kevin Eveleigh Award' by Newark and District Primary School Sports Association (NDPSSA)!
On 4th July 2018, Captains of the teams representing school this year in Football, Netball and Athletics attended the NDPSSA Presentation Evening event, where our school was awarded the final and most special award of the evening by the Mayor of Newark: The Kevin Eveleigh Special Award!
This award is given to schools whose pupils have shown outstanding sportsmanship and a consistently strong commitment, effort and dedication to all events entered and are known for their positive attitude and behaviour.
Comments about Lovers' Lane from other schools in Newark and District, who nominate the winner, included:
"Win or lose, they are always well mannered and polite"
"Lovers' Lane take part in almost every sport available, always trying their best"
"For a small school, they always punch above their weight!"
We are exceptionally proud of all of our children and are delighted at winning this honour. It is particularly special as we were nominated by the other schools in Newark and District and this means they have enjoyed competing with us at every level of every tournament. This shows our values of 'Show Respect', 'Work Together', 'Aspire' and 'Nurture' are embedded and are very much in action in all we do. WELL DONE TEAM SWAN! We are very proud of you all!
Thanks also go to all parents for your support and to all staff who have given up their time, energy and have given the children a lot of quality guidance and encouragement. You are very much appreciated!
