T&W Athletics Championships

Well done to our Year 5/6 athletics team that this afternoon won the T&W Athletics Championship held at Oakengates Athletics track.

The team competed against 24 other schools in the following events – 80m, 150m, 600m, 800m, 400m Relay, cricket/rounders ball throw and standing long jump. The children won lots of individual medals but for the first time in our schools history, we also won the overall team championship.

The competition was extremely good again this year and we knew the scores would be close, but we were blown away when it was announced we had won.

Mrs Kenny also said ”how fantastic it was to see the real team spirit and support we have at Grange Park for each other in our sports teams, whether someone won their event or not, all the children clapped them back in and said well done.” That’s worth more than any award.

Proud of every single team member today, not just for their performance, but for their team spirit and sportsmanship.
