The Primary Schools’ annual Area Athletics took place at King’s Somborne Recreation ground on June 24th 2014. All seven local Primary Schools took part as the event promised to be ‘gripped’ with competition this year.
The Year 7 Young Leaders were the officials for the competition and, although they were in a jovial mood for the event, they took their responsibilities very seriously studying the competition format and working out the scoring system.
We were very grateful that Hildon Natural Mineral Water sponsored the event by providing free water for the participants as it was a hot sunny afternoon.
The events this year included jumping, throwing and running. The sprints were very popular with pupils really trying to do their best and reach the yellow line first.
