This year Sports Day at North Lakes School was held in two parts. The children competed well, and everyone contributed to the points totals for their team, taking part in a number of events.
A Junior Warrior Challenge, organized by Action Ants, saw all of the children complete an obstacle course on the school field including hurdles, dodgeball, a crawling net and a water slide. Competitors gathered points for their team each time they completed a circuit, as well as being marked for collaboration and teamwork.
On Friday 8 July, the Sports Day Finals were held. All children had already taken part in practice and qualifying events in a 60m sprint and long race, as well as shot putt and javelin events. The best performers on the track were selected for the finals of each race, while each team provided their best throwers for the field events.
Medals were presented to the winners of each event by Mowit Kale, an Indian cricket professional who has worked with us in school this year. This was a really colourful and enjoyable afternoon, with keen support from team mates and a large crowd of parents. Thank you all for your support, and to Mrs Greenwood, staff, and the Action Ants for organising the exciting events.
