On Thursday 5th December, Southglade Leisure Centre played host to the Year 5/6 Sporthshall Athletics Competition.
The 6 teams competing in this event have qualified through from family heats to the semi-finals and then progressed to the City Finals. It was a great achievement from all schools to have progressed this far and there was some excellent athleticism, skill and technique on show.
This competition has seen the most improvement of standards over the past couple of years and really shows the dedication and practice schools are now putting into its teams to prepare their pupils for such events.
Over the last term, 26 schools entered 4 family festivals; this meant that over 500 pupils in the City took part in the Sportshall Athletics Competition. This then led to 2 semi-finals consisting of 12 teams before the final event of 6 teams and 120 pupils battled it out to be crowned City Champions 2013/14.
