Sports Day ... records broken!
Great weather and great performances result in a perfect Sports Day!
On Thursday 26 June, students from Years 7 to 10 took part in the annual Heston Sports Day. This year saw a range of events, including the traditional sprints and relays as well as some new events, such as tug of war and the 40m sprint. The addition of these new events gave students the opportunity to compete in more sports, helping to increase student participation and competition between our seven Houses.
Field events took place in PE lessons prior to the day where all students competed in javelin, discus, shot putt and long jump. These scores were then added to the track event scores to determine the Sports Day Champions ... Orange House!

Mr Stuart Howkins, Assistant Curriculum Leader for PE and organiser of the day, said: "It was a really fun day and it was great to see the teachers showing their competitive side in the staff race! (as illustrated left in the dip for the line) The atmosphere was great and everyone enjoyed cheering for their House. Thank you to all of the staff and students who assisted with the organisation of the day and most importantly ... Congratulations to the all students who took part."
