Tuesday 27th February was the day of the Lancashire School Games Athletics Final at Blackpool Sports Centre. This is arguably the most competitive, exciting sporting event of the Lancashire Primary School Sporting Calendar. The children were pumped up and ready to rock and roll. Before I go into any detail about the performance of the children, the behaviour of the children was outstanding, I mean truly outstanding. One quote from a parent was ‘The kids showed serious maturity combined with great talent.’
Now to the performance. The day is a great one as it is run so smoothly and efficiently by Eveque. Over the course of the day, we had to compete in a mixture of track and field events. The team was on fire from the beginning until the very end and there were points where one or two mistakes crept in but the way they looked after each other and encouraged each other was phenomenal. All of this led to us absolutely smashing it and becoming Lancashire School Games Athletics Champions for 2nd time in 3 years, 2016 and now 2018.
A huge well done to: Eleanor Andrews (Captain), Alice Ainsworth, Charlotte Alty, Jessica Anderson, Tilly Bray, Khadija Essa, Eva Murray, Grace Willingale, Annabel Cutting, Elise Rawson, Bayla-Rose Smart (injured, but still massive part of the team over last 6 months), Thomas Aldridge, Alex Grandidge, Jacob Mason, Max Nightingale, Safee Shahabi, Jed Anderson, Charlie Bray, Ethan Chadwick, Oliver Heath, William Hall and Lewis Simpson.
Mr. Bird’s Comments: “What can I say? PHENOMENAL. This is our greatest achievement ever, every single child has worked so hard for this moment. Also, a huge thanks to all adults who supported on this epic 6 month journey. Thank you.”
