Sports Day 2014

This year’s annual sports day began with the Kevin Mann Race. A true test of stamina with the children participating in a distance run in pursuit of individual glory. Congratulations to all the children who took part in these very exciting races as well as the four boys and four girls who won each age group.

 

The rest of sports day saw the children compete as individuals and as members of their house teams to try to claim the coveted Sports Day Trophies. All the children competed in field events such as: the javelin, tennis ball throw, kilogram ball throw, speed jumps and the standing long jump. As well as track events such as: the 60, 200 and 400 metre sprints; skipping, bean bag challenge, the obstacle race, the dribble slalom and relays.
