Mrs Scahill, Head of Athletics
Sports Day is back! It was amazing to see and hear the whole School out there, with parents too, creating a real atmosphere. The weather was kind, the students were on excellent form, and there was lots of support from the side lines. Team spirit was high and it was brilliant to hear the students cheering each other on and congratulating and sharing in each other’s triumphs. We had two brand new commentators, Mrs Johnson and Mr Morton, who formed a great double act and kept everyone informed and entertained.
There were many personal bests and records broken, including Year 10’s Ethan who was our record breaker of the day with four broken; 38.70s 300m, 6.00m long jump, 4 x 100m relay and 12.30m triple jump which dates back to 1977. Year 10’s Nancy also broke two records; 10.69 shot and in the discus threw 33.71 which was 4 metres more than the previous record,( in the discus 33.71m) and will be representing Suffolk in the hammer at the English Schools Athletics Championships in Manchester on Friday 8 July. Year 7’s Oliver broke the shot put record achieving an impressive 9.11m, and Year 7’s Georgia broke the record for 300m record in a time of 49.38s.
The Year 10 Seckford Boys relay team of Oscar, Tolly, Toby and Ethan broke the Middle Boys 4 x 100m record in a time of: 48.56s.
