The track was very competitive
This Year Sports Day was held on the school playing field in the beautiful sunshine. The students were extremely supportive of each other with lots of banners and posters to promote their Houses. The day started with the 400m where students had to sprint to line in some very close races. The track was very competitive with some Tutor groups achieving bonus points for having two participants enter.
The long jump was a place for records as a number of students achieved their best performances. In particular Konstantinos Nikopoulos (Year 10) for 5.42 metres jumped.
