Junior Athletic Day 5.12.14

We had a super Junior Athletic Day on Friday and the weather was just great. The children were enthusiastic and we saw many of the gifts and talents that God has given them on display as they ran, jumped and threw. A big thanks to Mr Taylor’s class, C4, for helping out and also to the teachers. Thanks to all the parents who came along to support also.

The Sprint Finals and House Relay were very exciting (a dead heat between Hillary, Sheppard and Rutherford!) and results are attached here: Junior Athletic Results 2014
