LKS2 Team Quad-Kids Runners Up!
After a sterling performance by their older counterparts, Year 3/4 had their opportunity on the Quad-Kids Athletics stage. On a blustery evening, Team EPJS took to the field in this multi-discipline event, with vortex throwing, long jumping and track events of sprinting and middle distance running as well as the blue riband finale — the sprint relays.
The 8 boys and girls from across Years 3 and 4 were excellent ambassadors for our school and included 2 last minute substitutions—thank you especially to them without whom we couldn’t have proceeded.
Some excellent all around performances and in true GB Olympic style the relay was was full of confusion but Team EPJS were a strong second place.
Ralph offered, "It was very good!"
Oscar added, "It was exhausting!"
Ivy Said, "I liked it and it was fun"
Ariella continued, "My favourite event was the running!"
Thank you to Mrs. Lawson for taking the children to the event; all the athletes that took part—both our own team and our competitors; to parents and carers for transporting and cheering; to the Year 7 sports ambassadors for marshalling each event and to Mr. Gwynn for his organisation.
