Sports Day 2017

Sports Day took place on Friday 30 June at Grove Park and, as per usual, the biggest worry in the run up to the day was 'will it stay dry?' Thankfully it did and Sports Day took place under a perfect level of cloud cover that kept the sun off most and the rain away.

The day started with the Year 7 and 8 House Rounders tournament, whilst the Year 9 and 10 kicked off the Athletics with the field events. The results were all tight with many teams only winning by half a rounder. Over on the athletics field, Year 9 and 10 were working hard to score points for their houses. Whilst there were medals for 1st, 2nd and 3rd place, every distance thrown or jumped equalled points for the house. It was great to see many records broken this year, with girls showing their talents for athletics.

Halfway through the morning the year groups swapped events and the rounders field was filled with Years 9 and 10, whilst Year 7 and 8 competed in athletics. The afternoon session saw the track events and girls from all years competing in the hurdles, 100, 200, 800 and 1500 meter races all culminating to an exciting 4 x 100 meter relay to finish. It was fantastic to see girls competing and cheering on their houses to help those racing score points and break records.

The morning events were rounded up and lunch time consisted of shade, sandwiches and music from the swing band which was excellent. A big thank you must go to the girls that played and the music department for organising. The afternoon session saw the track events and girls from all years competing in the hurdles, 100, 200, 800 and 1500 meter races all culminating to an exciting 4 x 100 meter relay to finish. It was fantastic to see girls competing and cheering on their houses to help those racing score points and break records.

Overall, the day was a great success. Students played sport and worked as a team, parents cheered on their daughters (and had a little Pimms) and the staff got to see students in a different light to the classroom norm. Well done to all involved!
