It was a fantastic start for our year 6 pupils who went to represent the school on Tuesday 4th October. In previous years we as a school have been unlucky not to qualify through the heats missing out last year finishing 4th. We knew going into the competition this year that only the top 3 were to go through to the Semi Finals.
The pupils showed fantastic resilience and passion to want to do well in this years heats, and with the group competing well with the rest of the schools in both the track and field events we knew we had a good chamce. The passion from the pupils certainly shined through as they earned themselves a top 3 spot leading to a Semi Final in the Athletics for the first time in three years. A massive well done to all that were involved and we are already looking forward to the Semi Finals after half term.
The Semi Finals proved a lot more challenging for our super athletics team, with the standard really high and unfortunately our team didn't make the finals this year, but hopefully will have more success in the years to come. All pupils tried their best and had to show great resilience to not give up and carry on throughout.
