Junior sports day survives the weather

Pupil long jumps on Junior School sports day

The enthusiasm of our pupils wasn’t dampened by a downpour which delayed the start of our Junior sports day.

The year five and year six events saw excellent performances in the long jump and throwing, while there were several close finishes in the track events, none more so than in the relay which saw Nicholson house enjoy victory in the boys’ and girls’ races.

The afternoon session began on time with only light clouds and the temptations of the Stopfordian Parents’ Association’s cake stall threatening the children’s performances.

The year three children thoroughly enjoyed the new experience of Junior sports day with the afternoon being brought to an exciting climax by the shuttle relay, with Vernon victorious in the girls’ race and Arden winning in the boys’ relay.

Well done to all of children for their effort and determination which made for such a successful day.
