Senior school athletes compete in annual sports day

All traditional sporting events had their day at the annual senior school sports day. Bedstone’s young athletes competed in 100 metre sprints, 1500 metre races as well as relays, javelin, high jump and many more events.

Highlights of the day included some very close 800 metre races for both girls and boys where there was less than a second between 1st and 2nd place. The boys senior 4 x 400 metre relay was also very close and an excellent race to see the students participate in.

Miss Ross, Head of Girls’ PE said: “I thought the whole atmosphere and levels of participation were excellent. To see the students taking part when the events weren’t necessarily their strongest and then being joined on their way to the finish line summed up the excellent sportsmanship of all involved. Every race was competitive and challenged even the strongest of athletes to their max.”

Different houses dominated the age groups and all participants did very well.
