Today our Interscholastics team travelled to Meadowbank to compete against the rest of the city’s schools in an athletics competition. Our athletes performed brilliantly, encouraged one another and even came home with a gold medal!
The attached gallery shows the pupils doing their very best in all the events, but our greatest success came in the girls’ running events and the boys long jump. Liam Dunn (The Zebras) outqualified the others in his heat and jumped his way into the final, eventually finishing just outside the medal places. Our girls relay team, featuring Chloe, Courtney, Carra and Rosa (The Zebras) won their heat and semi-final races before finishing in fifth place. Well done to them.
The moment of gold medal glory was reserved for the P7 girls 150m sprint in which Rosa (The Zebras) won in a very close race. Her performance was outstanding, with Rosa accepting her medal with humility and good grace. Well done Rosa and well done to everyone on the team who played their part in cheering her on.
