Run, jump and throw!
Our Year 7 and Year 8 students demonstrated their ability to run, jump and throw at the recent Indoor Sports Athletics competition. Four Richmond School teams competed against teams from Bedale School and Wensleydale School during the afternoon in a range of events including obstacle relay, vertical jump, shot and 4×2 lap relay. The event was organised and delivered by Richmond Sixth Form CTEC Sport students.
Richmond Boys Team 1 finished 5th in their competition with Richmond Boys Team 2 finishing in 2nd place. Richmond Girls Team 2 finished in 3rd place in their competition with Richmond Girls Team 1 finishing 1st and winning the competition. Congratulations to the champions – Emmy, Amelia, Isobel, Abi, Martha, Lily-Mae, Milly and Mia.
Ms Abbey, Lead Teacher for PE said: “The atmosphere at the event was amazing and, even though some Richmond School students were competing against each other, they still cheered everyone on to do their best. We had alot of students who were keen to be part of this athletics event so selection was a challenging process. Athletics club starts after Easter and we have more outdoor competitions coming up, including Sports Day. All students are encouraged to come along.”
