Forest School Olympic Sports Afternoon

Monday, 25th June, 2012

As the athletics season comes to a close, our final competitive event was this inter-schools competition.

With a team of sixteen children from Years 3, 4, 5 and 6 we travelled to Forest School.  The afternoon was divided into track and field events.  Team spirits were high as we competed against seven other schools.

There were individual successes as well as good team rankings.
In the U9 girls standing long jump Nicole Alves (Y4) won a gold medal.
The boys U9 relay team Ben Myers, Oliver Cross, Joshua Olufowobi and Dilan Najran (Y4) were convincing winners leaving a good length between themselves and the team in second place.

Over all the results were as follows:
U9 Girls – 3rd
U9 Boys – 4th
U11 Girls – 7th
U11 Boys – 5th

When the scores were combined Avon House came 4th over all.  Well done to the whole team for an excellent performance.

Team members:
Nicole Alves, Simran Attalia, Lia Garcia, Katie Lonergan, Katie Riglesford, Olivia Segal, Maya Simms, Hannah Toft, Tomi Adeleye, Oliver Cross, Khan Gorgulu, Zak McCulloch, Ben Myers, Dilan Najran, Joshua Olufowobi and Haimish Patel.
