Sports Day 2017

On Tuesday 18th July students from Year 7, 8 and 9 along with all staff travelled to The Hayes playing field for our very first STACS Hayes Sports Day. Students arrived with faces painted to flying banners, colourful areas and new events in addition to our normal sports day. As students settled into the viewing areas ready for the day to start, you could feel the hum of excitement and nervous energy as Mr Martin said our opening prayer.

The students spent an hour on each area; Rounders, Track and Field and we have never experienced participation levels like it! The Rounders was a huge success with students and staff alike getting thoroughly stuck in especially with the cheering with Mrs Baylis being heard cheering for Newman from the track!! The track and field programme to complete a great day's athletics included: 800m, 400m, 300m, 200m, 100m, discus, shot putt, javelin and this year high jump. Most of our year 7s tried to do everything…remarkable effort, bet they slept well Tuesday night. 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 (especially our sixth form helpers) 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. Fingers crossed we get the same weather for next year!
