St John Bosco Catholic Primary School

Some of our talented runners travelled to Tipton Sports Academy to compete amongst 8 local schools in the second annual athletics competition. The events were tough as they are the same ones adults compete in – the 100m, 200m and 400m. All of our children did us proud and gave everything they had, encouraging each other all the way and making friends from other schools too. We finished a very respectable 5th in the team event, with a number of our children contributing. Highlights of the afternoon for us were Patrick’s bronze medal in the 200m, Sania’s silver in the 400m and our mixed relay team winning bronze medals too in an extremely close race we so nearly won! It was a great day all round. Well done to the children and thanks to Mrs Stocking who nearly lost her voice through all of her encouraging!
