Team EPJS Quad-Kids Athletes Qualify for Next Level
Team EPJS took to the field in this weeks latest competition—Quad-Kids Athletics. Similar to the Decathlon and Heptathlon in major athletics events, this is a multi-discipline competition in which the athletes take part in the field events of vortex throwing and long jump and track events of sprinting and middle distance running as well and blue riband finale— the sprint relays.
8 boys and girls from across Years 5 and 6 represented Team Trinidad & Tobago against 4 other teams and it was obvious from our arrival that the standard was very strong. As always the EPJS all-stars fared well in the distance running following an exceptional running season but there were also some fabulous individual performances throughout the evening
Thank you to Mrs. Coates 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 team of Year 7 sports ambassadors for coaching the children and marshalling each event and to Mr. Gwynn for his organisation of the evening.
