District Sports 2018
34 children represented the school on Wednesday for this year’s District Sports Finals.
Objective for us all on the day was to aim high as ever & win it, sadly it wasn’t to be this year as overall we
came 2nd, which is obviously still an excellent achievement from our children.
All of our 4 year group teams came in the top 3, with year 3 coming 2nd, year 4 took 1st place, year 5 came joint 3rd and another 1st was secured for our year 6 team. From that we had 12 1st place finishes, 9 2nd place & 5 3rd places finishes throughout the event.
It was Holy Family School who took 1st place overall, so congratulations to them.
The children did so well, and should feel really proud of what they achieved, they gave their all. The team spirit on the day was superb. All 8 of our relay teams qualified in their heats for the final. In those finals, our year 4 boys’ team took 1st place, year 5 & 6 boys took 2nd, along with the year 6 girls. Year 3 & 4 girls came 3rd, with the year 3 boys & 5 girls finishing in 5th place. We had some excellent individual performances too, with many top 3 finishes.
A special mention to these superstar athletes who secured 1st places finishes on the day. Charlie & Oliver for the sprints. Calean & Kaspar in the 600m. Teddy, Luca, Rebecca & Liam for ball throwing. Oliver, Ruby & Orla for long jump & the year 4 boys relay team consisting of Luca, James, Kaspar & Godfrey.
A huge thank you to our amazing parents for their support to all children, we certainly heard you throughout the day which was lovely. Our children are very lucky.
Thank you to Miss Hussey, Miss Marsh, Miss Bhambra and my work experience child Jack for their help & support on the day.
