Fantastic Athletics Success!
At the County round of the Track and Field Cup athletics competition last week we had a fantastic result with both our boy’s and girl’s teams.
The girls won the Dorset round - for the first time, we think, ever in this competition! The boys came 3rd. Both teams’ individual scores mean they are in the top 10 schools in the South-West of England! Therefore, they have qualified for the South-West finals at Milfield School on the 12th June. We have qualified for finals before, but not with both boys and girl’s teams. How incredible is that for a small state middle school to achieve against the private and large secondary schools?
We are so proud of what the pupils have achieved. Those who competed were a real mix of experienced athletes and those who were taking part in an athletics competition for the first time. Their behaviour and focus on the day was exemplary and what they achieved individually and collectively as a team was brilliant. A massive ‘well done’ to them all.
The finals are on Wednesday 12th June at Milfield School. We will be getting the teams ready for this date to try and see if we can increase our scores from last time.
Come on Allenbourn!!
