Great Sports Day turnout at Chapel St Leonards

C.I.T - Community Inclusive Trust. Where learning comes first

Parents and family members turned out in their droves as hundreds of spectators cheered on the pupils of Chapel St Leonards Primary School for their Sports Day.

Under a joyful atmosphere, with pupils chanting the name of their School House and a backdrop of music, Headteacher Mr Almond started the event with a countdown over the tannoy.

EYFS and Key Stage 1 pupils started the day’s proceedings by taking on a series of stations to test their running, jumping and throwing abilities. These included javelin, bean bag balancing, long jump, speed bounce, hurdles and a bean bag relay. The pupils then all had an opportunity to take part in sprint races, with winners progressing to the final, before a House relay that was great fun for everyone involved.

Key Stage 2 then took to the field during the afternoon with a plethora of support. The chest push throw and technically challenging triple jump were added to their repertoire of activities as pupils worked hard in the glistening sunshine.

In a closely contested race to the Sports Day trophy, it was Donna Nook who ran out victorious with the most points overall.
