Gifted and Talented Sportshall Athletics

North Oxfordshire School Sports Partnership Sportshall Athletics Competition
21st January 2016

100 Year 5 and 6 students from Banbury Academy’s family of primary schools enjoyed a morning of athletics on Thursday 21st January.  Our Dashwood pupils took part in both field and track events which were run by 24 Year 10 Banbury Academy students.

The competition was aimed at Gifted and Talented and well-motivated children in Years 5 and 6 which created a very competitive atmosphere!  After a series of hotly contested track and field events, our super team came third overall. 

NO School games Jan16-smThere were many outstanding individual performances throughout the morning including:

Beth who jumped 4.82m in the girls standing triple jump; Tassos threw 7.25m in the boys chest push; and Leo threw 13.27m in the boys Javelin.

The focus value for this festival was ‘passion’ and this was in abundance! A boy and a girl from each team was selected and presented with a special certificate to recognise their positive attitude and enthusiasm throughout the festival. Tassos and Mia (see photo) were awarded the Passion certificate because of the spectacular effort they gave throughout the competition.

Well done to the team: Beth, Julia, Maja, Diona, Anastazja, Mia, Kacey, Anisha, Tassos, Reece, Jayden, Leo, Hamza, Tyrese, Harvey, Daniel.
