Junior Athletics Championships
Three teams represented St John's at the Junior Athletics Competition organised by St Teresa's School. The Competition took place on Wednesday 8th June at the Stoke Mandeville Stadium with 26 teams taking part.
Overall we came in 12th place which was a good result for the team as, with our Year 6's away at Whitemoor Lakes, we had sent two year 5 teams and a Year 4 team.
All our children excelled themselves and there were some very good performances. Mary D, who was competing against Y6 children, came 1st in the 600m and 2nd in the Long Jump. James D, in Year 4, also gained 1st place in his 600m race. Finally our year 5 boys relay team of Jonny, Ethan, Henry and Nathan, were third in their event.
Many thanks to Mrs Bowden and Mrs Hodghton who organized the teams and to all those parents who supported the children on the day.
