Last week saw our first whole school sports day at Bradford Park Avenue Stadium. What a successful day it was!
Teams competed in their house groups across a range of activities including; the ever-popular ‘dizzy penalties’, welly throwing competition, the fittest athlete, 100-metre sprint, and rounding off the day with a 400-metre fun run for everyone to participate in!
The ‘fittest athlete’ competition included a grueling schedule of activities: sit-ups, press-ups, star jumps, burpees, and jumping lunges. The finale to determine the overall winning athlete was a 100-metre sprint made up of boy and girls. Congratulations to Anaayah C. for a five-star performance!
Principal Mr Rees joined proceedings just in time to enter the Year 9/10 boy’s 100-metre sprint only to be beaten by Ibrahim Nawaz and Damian Malinowski. Well-done Mr Rees joining in the fun.
