On Wednesday 22nd March a group of 14 year 5 students visited Barrs Hill secondary school to take part in an athletics competition. The events ranged from running over short and long distances, different types of jumps and different throwing events. Each child ran twice and had at least 1 field event.

The students performed magnificently well, and came 2nd on the day. They were presented their medals by Coventrian David Moorcroft OBE, a former athlete himself. Special mention goes to Elham and Redir who received an award for “athlete of the day”.

Well done to all the students who took part, they really did their best and most importantly enjoyed their visit. Thanks too go to the Barrs Hill secondary school staff and students who helped plan and run the event, and made it a great time for everyone. We look forward to seeing you again in the future.
