On Saturday 24 June the whole of the Junior School came together for our annual Sports Day. Coming at the end of the hottest week of the year we awoke on Saturday to grey and threatening skies. Thankfully the rain was lenient with us and blue skies eventually became the order of the day.
The day started with our sprint heats on the track, before we all dispersed to the four corners of the field to take part in our field events. With many noteworthy performances from boys of all year groups in long distance running, throws of many varieties and a myriad of jumps we reconvened on the track for the sprint finals before finishing with the relays.
