Basingstoke Schools Year 5/6 Athletics Final
The winners of all the local schools indoor cluster athletics events which had taken place over the last few months attended Everest Community School for a Grand Final. Another afternoon of competition and enjoyment for all participants, with everyone displaying their skills in running, jumping or throwing and in some cases were outstanding in all 3 events.
A competition where children are scattered around the sports hall to partake in a combination of challenging tasks, those selected for the javelin go outside to give them the best opportunity of throwing the spear a reasonable distance.
All children & parents enjoyed the competition especially when the final results were read out. For the 3rd year running St. Mary’s retained the title of Basingstoke Schools Indoor Athletics Champions, winning the event 69 points ahead of 2nd place.
This was a superb finish to an afternoon which proved just what a wealth of talent we have at St. Mary’s. A huge thank you must go to parents and family members who assisted with transport to make this event such a success.
