Due to heavy rain and wet fields the Touch is CANCELLED tonight
Sorry everyone but due to the rain today our Athletics finals will have to be postponed till Monday evening, 2 November. Apologies for the change to Monday as staff are involved in a staff meeting on Tuesday.
Weather looks good for Monday, 23 degrees and little wind.
See you then!
The Year 4-8 Athletics finals are on Wednesday evening. Already we have had 14 records set at the qualifying day – see below, how many more will be set on Wednesday evening?

Well done to all children who competed today in warm and windy conditions. It was especially tough for the runners running into a head wind! Despite the conditions though, we had some excellent performances with a number of Field events records equalled or bettered and one track record set also. It was great to see children showing EXCELLENCE while giving their best in their eight events over the day.
