Croydon Athletics Competition

A group of Atwood children took part in a Croydon Athletics competition this week at Croydon Arena, and all of them did an amazing job despite the sweltering heat. The boys and girls relay teams are through to the semi-finals, and there were some great results in other disciplines, with Alyzé coming first in the Year 5 girls high jump, Inessa winning the Year 5 sprint and Daniel coming a very close second in the 800m. There were fantastic performances from Max, Teddy and Izzy in the high jump, Sophie and Megan in the long jump, Han-Joon in the throwing, Jayden in the sprint and Ruby in the 800m.

The support from parents was incredible, with many staying to cheer the children on throughout the whole event, and huge thanks also to all the staff who took the time to help or come and support. I think everyone will agree that the children should be very proud, not only of their sporting achievements, but of the wonderful team spirit and the way they all supported each other.
