Although we were unable to hold the annual Middle School Sports Day at Tilsley Park as normal, the PE department organised their own Virtual Garden Games live via zoom instead.
The third year event was unfortunately hit by the weather, so had to be adapted at the last minute into the “Indoor Games” but this didn’t deter from the enthusiasm and energy on show. It proved a very even contest, with the event winners being shared around: Austin won the Target Throw and Standing Long Jump; Border’s the Cereal Box Jump; School House the Shuttle runs; James’ the Catching and Franklin’s the Keepy Ups.
Consistency across the disciplines proved decisive though as O’Doherty’s took the title just ahead of School House in 2nd with Border’s and James’ closely behind in joint 3rd.
The fourth year event was an equally enjoyable and fun afternoon. It proved to be a slightly more one-sided affair in the end with O’Doherty’s dominating most events, however School House came out on top in the Target Throw and lots of excellent individual performances were recorded throughout the afternoon.
Well done to all the boys who participated.
