Holy Spirit Sports Day 2018

On Wednesday 27th June, we held our annual school Sports Day. It was a fantastic day for everyone involved and it was lovely to see so many of you there supporting your children and our school.  On the day, the children competed in races such as:

-Sprint

-Relay

-Obstacle

-Javelin

-Tug of War

-Drop and Dash

All the children gave their very best and thoroughly enjoyed the wide variety of events.

As is tradition, the four house teams in school (St George, St David, St Patrick and St Andrew) all competed in the hope that they would be crowned winners and claim our school trophy. The trophy is awarded to the team who accumulates the most points. After all of the races were completed, the scores were counted and St Patrick came out victorious in both Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2! The scores were very close and all of the children should be incredibly proud of themselves for their amazing effort and behaviour during the day. The excellent team spirit also demonstrated throughout sports day was a pleasure to see. Well done everybody!
