Congratulations to the Year 5/6 Sports Hall Athletics team who competed against 19 other Lewisham schools in the hope of representing the Borough at the London Youth Games.
The team came in 2nd place in the morning competition, and 3rd place overall once the afternoon competition had taken place and the results of the two competitions had been merged. 3rd place in Lewisham is a massive achievement and the team are feeling very proud! Rathfern were the highest scoring team in 4 of the 12 events – the boys 1+1 Lap Relay, Over/Under Relay, Chest Push and the Soft Javelin.
The results have highlighted some of our team’s strengths, but also areas that we can look to improve for the summer Athletics season. The children were competitive, resilient and encouraging of one another. At the end of the competition the children asked me whether they could go over and congratulate the winning team, and thank the event organisers. It was wonderful to see the team displaying such brilliant sportsmanship!
