Our annual Sports Day was held at WGSF track on Tuesday 13th June, with every student in the Junior Section competing. They competed in a range of traditional athletics which included a mixture of track and field events along with fun team and individual events such as egg and spoon, skipping, sack and an obstacle race.
The weather was very hot and sunny however students were well catered for with extra gazebos for shade, caps and plenty of water and it did not stop them performing to a very high standard.
Four existing Sports Day records were broken – Arianna in Year 3 sack race, Avi in Year 3 skipping race, Rosa in Year 5 75 metres sprint and Eleanor in Year 6 hurdles. One new record was set by Olivia in the Year 4 hurdles as new equipment was used in this event. Eleanor in Year 6 won 3 gold medals as did Rosa in Year 5.
Medals were presented for 1st, 2nd and 3rd place. These were our new sustainable wooden medals which had been laser cut by the Senior Section DT Department and designed by students. Cups were awarded to competitors who won each event.
