On Friday the 10th May we took part in the ISA London South Athletics competition at the Excel Sports Hub in Walton. We left at 7:30am and took a steady drive down to the venue all the children were very excited for the day ahead of them. When we arrived, we got settled and all children took part in a warm up following with a full school’s parade around the big track.

The events started at 10am for all track events and 10:15 for all field events.

We took part in lots of events:

Track were 600m, 60m, 75m, 80 and 150m.

The Field event was ball throw.

After all the events had finished we sat down for lunch in the stadium seats enjoying the beautiful sunshine. Lunch time was over and we were back into the finals for all the track events which we had two students who took part in these finals Alec W from Year 4 and Vivienne L from Year 5

We ended the day on the relays which was such a fantastic finish to a great day. All teams did great and couldn’t be any prouder on how they ran as a team.

Oakhyrst found out that they had two students who had qualified for the National finals which will be hosted in Birmingham on the 17th June.

I just want to thank Miss Dance, Mr Burke and Mr Harris for coming along to the event to help out. I truly appreciate all the support and help you gave not just to me but the children as well. I want to say a huge congratulations to all students who took part. I’m so proud of each and every one of you. You are all a credit to Oakhyrst.
