AJIS Indoor Athletics at Robin Park, Wigan



What a full on day this always turns out to be.  Considering the high percentage of our year 5 and 6 pupils that took part, we performed magnificently against some very big schools!  In all, 30+ schools were present, making it the most well attended for many years.

Behaviour was a credit to our pupils, whilst being a challenge to some from others schools. We made noise - lots of noise - when supporting our team mates, and even friends from other schools!

Of the 39 events that we took part in, a third finished in the top 10! Four of those were in the top 5, with Ellie Gillespie receiving a bronze medal for her efforts in the Speed Bounce!

It was the perfect start to a very busy 2 weeks for sport, at the Infant and Junior School - bring it on!
