Athletics Track & Field 2022
We were blessed with fantastic weather for our athletics event on Friday 15 July. All years took part in track and field events throughout the course of the day in a variety of running and throwing activities. It was so good to see the students competing in their forms for a medal and some of the competitions were closely contested, with very narrow margins determining who took home the gold medal. It was lovely to see the students walking around the school wearing their medals proudly and hearing them chink as they walked, with some winning more than one medal for their form.
Outstanding performance from the day go to the following students for their athletic prowess and sporting endeavours: Year 7 student Tessa B broke the school athletics record in the discus throwing 17.75m, beating a record held since 2015 by over a metre; Rachel C in Year 10 narrowly missed breaking the discus school record that has been held since 2001, missing out by just a few centimetres.
Here are the overall results for each year by form:
Year 7 winning relay team: 7.2
Year 8 winning relay team: 8.1
Year 9 winning relay team: 9.1
Year 10 winning relay team
I would like to thank the Year 12 leaders that volunteered to help make the day a success with their excellent organisation and support of this event. A special thank you also goes out to Mrs Evans, Mr Finney, Mrs Allen, Mrs Muir and Miss Appleton who all gave up their free time to help out.
