There are many more sporting activities and events already in the pipeline for 2016, but here is a quick round-up of some inspirational sporting activities that took place right at the end of last year.
First there was the Area Schools Championships Athletics Cross Country Event held at Kings School in Bruton. The results were as follows:
Hayden Leeke – Minor – 37th
Bobby Trevaskis – Junior – 40th
Eve Sale – Inter Girls – 15th
Jayson Flowers – Inter Boys – 11th
Paula Malugu – Inter Boys – 36th
Jordan Ewing – Inter Boys – 36th
Rhys Bailey – Inter Boys – Did not finish due to injury, however he did run the first part of Hayden’s race with him.
Secondly there was the Parallel School Championship Games.
Fairmead students took part in the Parallel School Games at Millfield School, where they competed in a number of different athletic events over the course of the morning. The students competed in javelin, chest push, target throw, standing long jump, high stepper and speed bounce. They then went to compete in the relay events where they finished first both times.
PE Coordinator Nadine Collard said: ‘The students put 100 per cent effort into all these activities and were true ambassadors of Fairmead School’.
