The University Academy Kidsgrove held their annual sports week between the 17th and 19th June. Every year group competed on a different day. The weather was glorious (for a change) and the pupils performed brilliantly. The behaviour of the pupils was outstanding and it was really nice to see them making a positive contribution to their teams and organising themselves in events.
Pupils competed in five events; Rounder’s, Sprinting, Long Jump, Javelin and the Obstacle course. Pupils also participated in Interform Football and Netball earlier in the term and the results from these events were added to the final scores.
Because of the mixture of events, the turn out from each form was very encouraging. In year 7, 83% of pupils took part. 76% of year 8 pupils, 74% of year 9 and 77% of year 10 pupils participated over the four days. Overall, 77% of the whole school participated.
Each form competed against others in their year group for the coveted title and trophy. The results are as follows:
Year 7 Sports Day Winners- 7PB with 28 points
Year 8 Sports Day Winners – 8MJL with 25 points
Year 9 Sports Day Winners – 9LMU with 26 points
Year 10 Sports Day Winners – 10SBA with 26 points
Well done to all the competitors and winners!
Thank You to all those who took part and supported. Special Thanks goes to the rest of the PE department; Mrs Smith, Mr Davies, Mr Bunn and Miss Bennett for helping to organise and run the event.
Let’s hope that next year is even more successful!
