Sports Day - 15 July 2014

On Tuesday 15 July students from Year 7, 8 and 9 along with all staff travelled to Tudor Grange Athletics Stadium in Solihull for the infamous "STACS Sports Day". The sun was shining, faces were painted and the banners were flying for each house. As students settled into the stands ready for the day to start you could feel the hum of excitement and nervous energy as Mr Foley said our opening prayer at his final Sports Day.

With a new online signing up system this year, students were already prepared with what events they were competing in. The students contended through a track and field programme to complete a great day's athletics including: 800m, 400m, 300m, 100m, discus, shot putt, javelin and long jump. We had a lunch time surprise which Turaya Bryan-Tracey organised: Year 9 Boys vs Girls 4 x 100m relay, with two "surprise guest teams"... the staff! The male staff team showed everyone exactly how to do it, sailing into first place. The final and most sought after events were the relays; the noise from the crowds certainly spurred their teams on to some very professional and well executed racing.

A huge thank you should go to all our students and staff who made the day a success. The students were extremely enthusiastic in their participation throughout the day, from competing in events to cheering on from the stands. Special thanks to Mr Keegan who did an awesome job once again on the public address system!
