Prep Sports Day 2019

Prep Sports Day 2019
DSC_0578On Saturday 29th June, our Prep School travelled to Yate Outdoor Sports Complex for this year’s Sports Day. 

The whole school represented their individual Houses and each team consisted of one boys and one girls House from the Lower or Upper Pre. The teams were completely mixed ability and the emphasis was on mass participation. Therefore, every child must be involved in sports day, encouraging a co-operative and competitive atmosphere for the individual and House team. Points were allocated for positions and the team with the greatest number of points won.

Years 4 and 5 competed in the morning and Years 6, 7 and 8 in the afternoon. The sun most certainly shone and the day ran very smoothly with great success. The children must be congratulated on their superb attitude. They approached the day with energy and enthusiasm. I was so impressed to see not just impressive individual effort but great team spirit with obvious display of support and encouragement for others.
