Basingstoke Schools Finals Athletics Competition

On Thursday 26th February, Miss Grainger took our super athletes to Brighton Hill Community School for the finals as they qualified 3rd in a previous round. The team have been busy preparing for this event prior to going on Thursday by coming in on a Wednesday morning at 8am for their training. Each child had to compete in a sprint event, a throwing event and a jumping event to which they all did so, so well. There were 8 schools at the finals although 22 schools across the town have taken part and I am very pleased to announce that our school finished 5th overall. We are so proud of our team.

Faye came 2nd in the sprint event and Amelie came 3rd. Harry came 1st in his Sprint event and Jett came first 1st in the target throw. Faye had a good day as she also came 2nd in the standing long jump event. Wow! Thank you to all of you for representing our school so brilliantly - your sportsmanship was also fantastic. You are a credit to our school.  We would like to thank the crowd of supporters - they really did appreciate your support. I would also like to thank Miss Grainger who has coached the children and made this event possible.
