This year’s school Athletics Championships took place on Wednesday 5th June. The running schedule had to be slightly altered due to inclement weather but all competitors gave 100% effort in the challenging conditions.
In the morning pupils participated in the Shot Putt and Long Jump events outside, while the High Jump finals were held indoors. After these were completed, competitors began the 100m, 400m and 800m heats on the track. The track was slightly wet underfoot but everyone managed these conditions well, with some of our competitors posting very good times.
Due to the forecast, the 800m and 400m finals were also completed before lunchtime with the aim of avoiding the worst of the weather. This left only the 100m finals after lunch to round off the action for the day.
