On Tuesday 7th November, our Year 5/6 Athletics team took part in the final heat of this years Year 5/6 Indoor Athletics competition. The team placed third, narrowly missing out on the top two places but qualifying for the semi finals by a massive one hundred point margin from the joint 4th place teams, Robin Hood and Southglade.
Up against schools from across the city, which included last years City and County Champions Southwark, the team more than held their own.
Out of twelve races we placed 1st in four,2nd in four and 3rd in four a fantastic effort. In the field events the children competing performed brilliantly.
Special mention must go to Miya Bailey from Super Cedars, who gained the highest mark in the vertical jump out of all boy and girl competitors in the heat! Also Kade Davies Boulter's athleticism in the standing triple jump and his determination in the relay races, ensured our qualification to the semi finals for the 4th year running.
The Semi Final will take place at Harvey Hadden Sports Village on Thursday 30th November.
