Annual Sports Day

The day of Ruthin School’s annual Sports Day dawned cloudy and damp, and a few dedicated students spent the morning competing in the throwing events on the back field. There was some very impressive throwing: Jenus broke the school record for middle girls in the discus.

As the whole school made their way to Deeside Athletics Stadium after lunch, the rain stopped and the sun came out, leaving ideal conditions for the afternoon events. Each event was hotly contested, as students from each house vied to gain places and points. The scores were close throughout the afternoon and it was the highly competitive 4 x 100m relays which proved the decider. The eventual winner of the whole competition was Brunel House, with the following winning their age group categories:

Senior Boys – Hugo 

Senior Girls – Elen 

Middle Boys – Javid 

Middle Girls – Manon 

Junior Boys – Agi 

Junior Girls – Sophie

 Well done to all who participated, particularly to those who set new school records, and thank you to the staff who helped the afternoon run smoothly.
