The Wallace Hall Academy Sports Day took place on Tuesday 7th June with competition fierce for the fantastic array of silverware up for grabs. Every one of these trophies has generations of names engraved on them and success at the 2022 Sports Day ensured that this year’s winners join the long list of previous winners that have become part of Wallace Hall Academy’s 300-year sporting history.
Following a programme of heats in track and field events, the final races took place in the afternoon with competitors giving their very best in front of an enthusiastic crowd of staff and pupils. The sun shone and it was great to have the whole school outside supporting the event.
