Thomas Aveling Sports Day 2018
Thomas Aveling held their annual Sports day this year on a very warm July 4th.
The morning events ranged from the traditional high jump and javelin to some new sporting activities such as the obstacle course and the Year 10 three legged race. Pupils attitudes on the day were fantastic, everyone participated well whilst trying to earn their houses as many points as possible - although only one house could come out on top.
After a short break the students then returned to the track for the afternoon events, starting with the 200m and finishing with the more anticipated events such as the 100m sprint and the 4x 100m relay. Mr Williams, PE Teacher and organiser of the event said ‘The atmosphere was electric and you could really feel the sense of competition between both staff and students. Victory, Cavalier, Achilles and Resolute all achieved some level of glory by winning sports day in at least one year group each - the overall winners this year being Resolute.’
Mr Williams added ‘The day as a whole was brilliant, with smiles all around and students pleased with their own achievements - even if this meant beating their previous personal best in an event. Thank you to all staff and students involved, we'll see you again next year for sports day 2019!’
