There was great excitement yesterday when our Junior Wakefield Girls came together for our annual Sports Day. The sun came out, the playing fields were bright and it was a special day as we invited parents back to join us after a 3 year hiatus.
Students took part in many events including Field Events of long jump, high jump, rounders ball and shot during the morning. The stand-out performance in the field events came from Dulcie in the Year 6 high jump where she jumped a new record of 1.24 metres.
In the afternoon students competed in the Track Events which consisted of sprints, middle and long distance races and hurdles. A record breaking performance came from Rosa, in Year 4, who broke 2 records, in the 50 metre sprint and 400 metres.
A range of Fun Events brought a light-hearted element to the day. The Fun Events included the much loved and anticipated egg and spoon, sack and skipping races as well as an obstacle course. These events were just as competitive and hard fought as all the other events.
The day concluded with the House relay races and a new event, a mixed year House relay. Congratulations went to Lee House who triumphed overall after winning the Year 3, Year 5 and the mixed year relays.
It was a great day to come together as a community and cemented what Wakefield Girls does best: celebrate the achievements, the wins and the camaraderie, as well as taking part in a wonderful event that leaves lasting memories of school life.
