Borough Sports Championships - Wednesday 21st June
The Borough Sports Championships is a fantastic event which we look forward to every summer. This takes place once a year at Bannister Outdoor Sports Centre, competing against all the schools within our borough.
Twenty five children from Years 5 and 6 were chosen to represent St George's at this event. The children took part in various field and track events. Lots of children got through to the final heats in many of their events, going onto win medals and certificates.
The Year 5 boys relay team put in an unbelievable performance in their heat, winning by a huge distance and a great time. This led them into the final in a great position of winning Gold. Sadly this was not meant to be due to one of our boys falling over. The boys continued their efforts to recover from the earlier fall with Joseph overtaking three runners on the last leg, bringing St George's back up to 5th place.
Alice won her heat in the 60m sprint and went on to gain 2nd place overall.
Rebekah gained 3rd place overall in the Vortex field event.
Fantastic behaviour, efforts and team moral shown from the children throughout the day. Well done to all the children that took part in this event.
