Year 5 and 6 Sportshall Athletics Competition

Yesterday, ten children (5 boys and 5 girls) attended the Sportshall Athletics competition at St Peter’s Collegiate School. They were competing against four other primary schools in six different events. The children competed in teams of boys and girls and then their scores were added together to make a whole school total. The events the children competed in were: –

  • Long jump
  • Chest throw
  • Throwing
  • Speed bounce
  • Sprint
  • Hurdles

The children did really well and showed great support for each other when competing. When all the scores were added together, SS Peter and Paul came third with a combined total of 764 points and were only 5 points off second place. The children all achieved a bronze medal and a certificate. A fantastic effort from everyone involved. A huge thank you to all the parents that came to support their children as well.
