On Thursday 28th January, after many weeks of early morning training, The Blue School Athletics team competed in a Quadkids athletics cluster competition at the Osterley Sports Track. Each child competed in four events: 75m sprint, 600m run, vortex throw and a standing long jump. The team were outstanding on the day, with many of the children winning their races. The level of sportsmanship that these ten children showed was exceptional – with members of the team running round the sides of the track to cheer their teammates on. After an impressive afternoon, it was announced that the Blue School team came second out of 13 teams, scoring a massive 1,498 points which has seen them into the borough finals! We wish them all the best for their upcoming competition.

A very well done to our Blue School Quadkids Team:

Scarlett, Netra, Ariana, Samuel, Jeremiah, Nishan, Daisy, George, Charlie, Lily.

 

*A VERY SPECIAL MENTION*

Jeremiah: Received a time of 9.7 seconds for his 75m sprint – a record for the Hounslow Borough so far!
