Sports Day 2019
Sports Day finally took place! Monday 1 July was a glorious evening at Bracknell’s John Nike Athletics Stadium.
More than 100 Key Stage 3 students descended on the track to represent their form groups, compete against each other and attempt to beat long standing school records.
Managed by a team of volunteer Year 10 Officials, the track and field was poised to be lit up with performances by our many talented students.
With the weather on our side, our students did just that. An exceptional evening of outstanding performances, competitiveness, support for one another and determination.
Congratulations to all our winners (listed in this week's newsletter).
Special mentions must go to Maya Akbar-Phillips for breaking the Year 7 Girls’ Shot Putt record (held for 17 years) by 51cm, Samara Afonughe for breaking the Year 7 Girls’ 100m record (held for 5 years) and Year 7 Girls’ 200m record (held for 3 years) and to Lauren Taylor who broke the Year 8 Girls’ 800m record (held for 3 years).
Further records were broken by Izzy James in the Year 7 Girls’ 1500m (held for 1 year), Harrison Taylor broke the Year 7 Boys’ Discus (by 3m54) and Year 7 Boys’ Javelin (by 93cm) (both held for 5 years) and the 7F Girls’ Relay team broke a 3 year old record in the Year 7 Girls’ Relay Race.
