On Wednesday 16th June, our Year 6 Athletics Squad competed at the Lewisham Borough Quad kids Athletics competition. This was our first face-to-face (Covid friendly) School Games competition since March last year. It was wonderful to be back in action and competing.
Children competed in four athletics events, the 75m sprint, 400m run, vortex throw and standing long jump. It was the hottest day of the year so far which made some of the events very challenging, but the children persevered and didn’t give up! The squad represented the school brilliantly, demonstrating maturing, kindness and great sportsmanship. Miss Sophie was very proud to see Rathfern children clapping and encouraging children from other schools to complete their races, regardless the place they were in.
We are very pleased to have come in 4th place, narrowly missing out on Bronze position. We have no doubt that the squad will go on to achieve some amazing sporting things when they head off to secondary school.
