Athletics

Sports Day this year fortunately coincided with one of the few fine days this month!  Held at Tooting Athletics Track, pupils enjoyed the opportunity to demonstrate their skills and gifts. Among the disciplines were sprinting, long jump, shot, discus, javelin and high jump. New records were set by Avigail, Cecilia and Nepheli in Year 7, Freya and Charlie in Year 8 and Tsion in Year 9. Many parents came to support their children and enjoyed sampling the strawberry cream tea on offer.

After qualification at the SW London Regional competition, Jimmy, Year 9, put in a very creditable performance at the ISA National Athletics in Birmingham. He came fifth in a field of 14. “If I had equalled the time I ran in the regionals,” commented Jimmy, “I would have come third.” At the regionals, Jed, Year 10, won gold in the 800m final.
