Winton Win The Septenary Games 2017
Last week a team of 20 children from Year five and six took part in the annual Septenary Games competition at Kings Park Athletics stadium. The Septenary Games involves all seven schools within our trust and is a fantastic opportunity for some children to compete in athletics events in a real stadium on an official running track. Sportsmanship, performing to the best of your ability and enjoyment were the main aims of the day and this was seen in abundance with: teachers running the 600m with the children, other schools cheering each other on in the 75m sprints and 4x100m relays, children feeling proud of what they had achieved and children problem solving with each other within a sporting context through ten team building and skill acquisition events. At the end of the day it was with great delight that Winton found out that we had won the trophy for the most points scored. Congratulations to everyone involved and I do hope the children will use this experience as a platform to further their sporting endeavours.
