Sports Day Success

On 14th June 2018 an enthusiastic group of students attended the Harris Federation Sixth Form Sports Day. This was the first outing for the team and the school. Serena Mitchell writes about the day below.

Thursday saw our first ever participation in the Harris Federation Sixth Form sports day. It was extremely nerve-wracking and anticipation was high, but as a team we managed to stay supportive of each other. Surprisingly, we were by far the loudest Harris school there, but this just shows the strength of our team spirit. Our competition was immense, and we were unable to find a participant for every event to maximise our points. Despite this, the people that did participate did an amazing job and should be very proud of themselves, especially when taking into consideration that they had little to no experience or training (which goes to show how talented they all were!).

SportsDay2A very special well done to the Girls Relay team who managed to secure the title of the fastest girls relay team in the Harris federation!

Thia Anayoku-Clough (Second leg)
Oceanne Blehiri (Third leg)
Serena Mitchell (Last leg)

 Overall, the school came in 5th place, which is very good when considering the circumstances, and the competitiveness of some of the other schools (some Harris schools train for these sports days from months before!). I hope that next year more people can get involved to improve our chances of winning, and being the most athletic sixth form as well as the smartest!

Well done guys!
