Year 7 and 8 Athletics Success

The Year 7 and 8 athletics teams recently competed in their first meet of the year. The girls’ team won their competition, while the boys’ team was third. Taiba (8S) had this to say:

“The Athletics team is a great experience because we all have a similar interest in Sports. You also have the chance to talk to people that you don’t normally talk to during school.  This year we had two new members from 7E join, Kemi and Jessica. They were very brave to step up, and compete against students who are older than themselves, so well done to them. Last year, the girls’ team won all four rounds of this competition, enabling us to become South East London Champions. We finished as runners up in the whole of London for Sportshall Athletics. It’s very pleasing to see that this success is continuing this year. Our next Athletics competition is in early December. We are very proud of our Athletics team, so people with talent and enthusiasm are welcome to join. We would like to say thank you to Mr Webb for being a great coach.”
