Athletics & Football Competitions

A team of Year 5 and 6 children recently competed in the SportsHall Athletics competition at Shenley Academy and finished in a creditable 6th place given the level of competition.  In the track events, the team won 8 out of the 10 ‘heats’ (finishing 2nd and 3rd in the other two) but the times were not quite as fast as schools competing in the other ‘heats’.  A fantastic performance and team effort by all – well done!  In particular, the organisers have informed us that Farhaan and Kyle Rio secured a ‘bronze medal’ position overall in the 6-lap Parlaauf event with a time of 1min 26s (1st place – 1min 21s; 2nd place – 1min 23s).

The boy’s football team finished in 2nd place at the Harborne Schools 4-a-side competition at the Futsal Arena, remaining unbeaten throughout (even drawing with the eventual winners!).  Some great football, teamwork and sportsmanship on display!  Well done boys!

Pictures to follow soon!
