SJH Partnership Primary AthleticsOn Monday 7th November the College hosted the level 2 school games indoor athletics. Six of our feeder primary schools attended the after school event and turned up ready to win!
After the first round of events including standing triple jump and standing long jump, the schools were extremely closely grouped, with Mary Dean heading the pack slightly from Oakwood. Next up in the field there was chest pass and speed bounce, some excellent performances led to Whitleigh, pushing out in front. When it came to the relays, Whitleigh consolidated their lead and in the end took the win from Beechwood by just 9 points.
The event was supported and run by our leadership academy students, helped by UCP Marjons coaching students.
Lauren Ranford, Alisha Hatrey, Ashleigh Carvell, Holly Bone, Olivia Hardy, Abbie Mason, Chelsea Wilkinson, James Edwards, Zach Tiddy and Jordan Williams demonstrated outstanding leadership qualities and were praised by the students from Marjons, primary staff and parents at the event. They were so impressed with them, they have asked if every child who comes to the College gets the opportunity to follow a leadership pathway!
Well done to all our leaders.
