Copthall Athletics Competition

Yesterday on Tuesday 27th June, 50 children went to Allianz Park (Copthall Stadium) to represent our school at the annual borough competition. The clouds were lurking all morning during the field events. These involved 16 year 5 and 6 children, who competed in High Jump, Long Jump, Speed Bounce and Ball and Javelin throwing. It was a great morning and it resulted in us coming 2nd over all! Last year we came next year that means......? Congratulations to all the field event participants.

Lunchtime arrived and so did the rest of the team. Due to the threatening weather the parade was abandoned and we got cracking with the races. Many individual successes were held here with lots of children finishing their races in the top 3 in the 60/80m sprints and 300/500m distances.

Unfortunately, the weather was no longer a threat and the heavens opened, just after we started the relays. The rest of the day was abandoned as the track was water logged, which is such a shame, but cannot be helped. The track event results are being calculated and we will update you when we have them. Well done to all our amazing sports stars on a fabulous day and thanks to all the staff who accompanied the children.
