Sports Day Was A Record-Breaking Success

10 Jun

Crescent School’s Key Stage 2 Sports Day took place on Tuesday 7 June on Princethorpe College’s beautiful playing fields.

Despite the dire forecasts the weather held, and the sun shone brightly on us all. Sports Day is always an exciting affair for the school and race after race, event after event our young athletes didn’t disappoint, as they leapt, threw and sprinted to make this year’s Sports Day a record-breaking success.

Years 3 and 4 and Years 5 and 6 competed separately in sprints, a middle distance 600m run, the Long Jump, High Jump, a Throwing Challenge and the House Relay Race. All the events were hotly contested and as always there were some smashing new school records.

They included:

  • Years 3 and 4 Boys 600m - Sam Bierton - 2.21.51 minutes
  • Years 5 and 6 Girls 600m - Evie Bierton - 2.14.68 minutes
  • Years 5 and 6 Boys 600m - Aryan Satsangi - 2.15.93 minutes
  • Years 5 and 6 Girls Long Jump - Eva Birkinshaw - 3.52 metres

At Crescent, Sports Day isn’t just about the competition, it is all about the participation. On the day every child took part and, most importantly, every child had fun. As is always the case the children’s behaviour was impeccable, they offered support and encouragement to each other and congratulated and commiserated with good heart.

At the end of a very busy morning, Mr Thackway was delighted to announce the House results and to present the trophies.

  • Years 3 and 4 Overall - St Andrew’s House
  • Years 5 and 6 Overall - St George's House
  • Key Stage 2 Overall – St David’s House

A big thank you to all of the staff involved in organising and running the event, both from the Crescent and from the Princethorpe Foundation.
