15th July 2019 – Our annual Sports Day was a great success this week. This was the culmination of several weeks of activity, with events such as javelin, tug of war and toss the welly having taken place during lunchtime sessions.
Our day at Westminster Lodge began with a warm-up led by the Y10 GCSE PE students, and then the competition for well and truly under way. Pupils from Years 7-10 took part in a variety of traditional track and field events, with Y12 students doing a super job of helping staff to make sure everything went smoothly.
Back at school, a Presentation Assembly took place at which the achievements of many pupils were recognised with certificates and a round of applause. Miss Baxter thanked everyone for getting stuck into the events, and reminded us that “Nobody ever regretted trying their best”. Then, amid much excitement, she announced the winning houses in each year group, followed by the overall winner.
A huge thank you to Mrs Baxter, the PE team, the Y12 students and all of the other staff for making this day such a success. And of course, a big thank you to our competitors for making it all worthwhile!
Sadly we can’t include photos of everyone who took part, but beneath this table of results is a selection of images which give a good feel for what the day was like. Click on any image to enlarge it and/or view a slideshow.
