Sports Day 2017

On the morning of Sports Day, Wednesday 12 July, our PE Faculty, Maintenance team and Technical crew sprang into action to get everything ready for 11am and the start of the Deer Park Sports Day. After some welcome rain the previous day, the track was beautifully marked out and flags were placed around the track making the field look spectacular.

Weather in the morning was perfect as it was slightly overcast and cooler than on previous days but the performances were still red hot. The (new) Year 10 and 11s competed in their Field events and the (new) Year 8 and 9s started on the Track. Athletes were called to their events by the Technical Team up on the tower and spectators were entertained by music and updates from announcer and Assistant Pastoral Leader Glynn Read.

A new school record was set by Tanwen (8FR) in the morning session, recording 5:40.15 in the 1500m, beating the previous record by over 3 seconds. We were treated to a flypast by jets headed to the Air Tattoo at Fairford and the morning session culminated with exciting relay races from the (new) Year 8 and 9 teams.

The afternoon saw the sun break through and once again the staff worked hard to get the pupils through the events. Two new records were set. Hugo (7DO) broke the Javelin record of 22.80m which had been set in 1996; Hugo threw 23.14m which is exceptional. Bruno (9JE) broke the 300m record by 7 hundreths of a second with a new time of 44.41seconds.

It was a spectacular day and Mrs Hacker would like to thank her Faculty and all Staff for their work on the day, with special mentions to the Maintenance and Tech teams, plus Mr Doidge and Mrs Hughes for their help collating the results sheets, and finally a big THANK YOU to the pupils for their fantastic efforts.
