ILG Athletics – Friday 11th May 2018
The first ever ILG Athletics event was held at The Sir Mo Farah Track in Teddington. Six schools in the Inspired Learning Group participated, sending teams made up of Under 9 Boys, Under 9 Girls, Under 11 Boys and Under 11 Girls. We took sixteen very excited athletes on the minibus and were confident that we would put in a good performance. The children competed in track and field events.
On the track they ran a sprint race, a 600m run (very tough!) and a hurdles race. The field events consisted of the standing long jump into the long jump pit, a foam javelin throw and a rounders ball throw.
Each athlete was presented with a medal and there were trophies for the schools scoring the most points in the different age groups. We performed incredibly well with both boys’ teams coming in third place. Our girls’ teams did even better, and both finished in second place. Well done Westbury House School!
The whole event, organised by Park Hill School, was conducted in an atmosphere of fun and friendliness. The children from the schools mixed together and had a great time competing at this famous venue. We look forward to future sporting events across the Inspired Learning Group.
