Sports Day 2023 – Leap, Launch, Excel

Sports Day is a highly anticipated event in the school calendar, bringing together students from Pre-Reception to Year 6 to showcase their athletic prowess and foster a sense of camaraderie. It is a day filled with excitement, cheers from peers, and enthusiastic support from parents who turn into the loudest cheerleaders. Beyond the competition, Sports Day instils important values such as sportsmanship, teamwork, and perseverance.

The children participated in various sports events, from javelin, high jump, long jump, 600m, sprints, obstacle races and much more! The houses cheered and roared for each other, with Thackeray, Wellington and Chalybeate trying to win the house trophy!

A special mention to our Mead school record breakers, Alex (Long jump over 6m and shot put) and Dylan (Javelin).

As the day concluded, the lingering echoes of laughter and cheers served as a testament to the true spirit of Sports Day. The 2023 edition may have marked the victory of Wellington, but in the grand scheme of things, every child who ran, jumped, cheered, laughed, and took part in this joyous spectacle was a winner.
