The annual school athletics competition this year found a new home at the Athletics Track in Deeside. The athletes were able to run on a conventional running track rather than grass for the first time. The whole school were taken to the event to either participate or support their houses. The whole event was a tremendous success, the rainy weather held off and most of the time it took place in sunny conditions.
In the junior boys and girls categories Elgar house and Newton house came first. In the Middle boys and girls Elgar house and Austen house led. In the senior boys and girls Newton house and Austen house came out on top. Austen house gained enough total points to come first in the overall competition.
There were also some excellent personal performances during the afternoon. Eva won three events at the senior level. John and Darren won two events and came second in their other. Serenna and Nicholas won their three events in the middle age range whilst Safi did this in the junior age group. Daniella, Morgan and Taewoo gained two wins in the junior age groups.
We will look forward to returning to Deeside next year.
