On Wednesday 18 June The John Nike Athletics Stadium, Bracknell was once again graced with the presence of some of the College’s finest athletes. Students from Years 7, 8 and 9 participated in a range of athletic events whilst under the watchful eye of trained Year 10 GCSE PE Athletics Officials.
New school records were set in the Year 7 Boys' 200 m by Joe Foster, in the Year 7 Boys' 400 m by Owen Heard and the Year 7 Boys' 1500 m by Luke Mann. Max Mercadal set new records in the Year 7 Boys' Discus and the Javelin and Issie Davis set a new school record in the Year 7 Girls' 100 m. Kathyrn Beckett set a new Year 7 1500 m record and Sammy Bonny now holds a school record in the 1500 m for Year 8 and Year 9. Furthermore, Becky Storer set a new record for
Year 8 Girls' Javelin.
This year students enjoyed receiving Bronze, Silver and Gold medals with podium photography in front of the grandstand. Gold winners will form our District Athletics Team and go on to represent the College at Sheerwater Athletics Track on Friday 27 June.
The PE Department would like to thank Mrs Bocutt for her tireless admin support on the lead up to the evening, Mr Middleton for photography and Mrs Goggin for giving up her evening for First Aid support. In addition, the PE Department would like to commend all those students who committed to both Extra Curricular Athletics and the event itself. Without this level of commitment the PE Department would not be able to run such an evening. The level of parental support was astonishing and we thank all parents who gave up their evening to come and support the event.
