Successful trials for District Athletics
On Thursday 3 May 2018, Cirencester Deer Park School hosted the District Athletics Trials, hosting 14 secondary schools.
Our thanks to all 35 of our Young Leaders and Games Captains, about whom we had numerous compliments – they really were a credit to the school and worked very hard throughout, showing that we are a leading school in Sports Leadership within the District of Stroud and Cotswold. They led the event on the night; they measured and recorded and were organised, polite and professional working with staff from other schools. Young Leader Tilly in Year 9 commented: “It was a nice evening and I enjoyed competing as well as helping staff to run the Javelin event.”
Thank you too to our staff who gave up their time to help make the event a success.
More than 30 Deer Park pupils competed and 10 have qualified for the District team and will be going to the County Championships on Saturday 9 June. Congratulations to:
- Aaron B (10FR) - Long Jump and Triple Jump
- Finn J (11LI) - Shot Put and Javelin
- Ollie G (10FR) - Shot Put
- Jim P (10NI) - Discus
- Monty P (9FR) - High Jump
