Sportshall Athletics 1st round - 20th January 2017
28 children travelled to Debden Park High School today for the first round in the annual Sportshall Athletics tournament. Excitement prevailed as they warmed up and waited for the competition to begin. Over the course of the afternoon, the team were to compete in 24 events comprising of: 12 relay races; standing long jump; standing triple jump; verticle jump; chest push; soft javelin and speed bounce.
Once the events were underway, nerves settled (mostly) and all the pupils performed outstandingly well; setting a very high standard for the other schools to beat: these targets, set by St John's pupils proved too much and they gained a very impressive victory winning by nearly 100 points.
Well done to all the children who competed today.
