The morning started bright and early with our small group of seniors heading off to the venue for the big athletics meeting. All ready to go and showcase their sporting abilities. Once there a little warm-up session and then onto the pavilion to wait for the start of the first event - 800m. A few of our runnersdiscovered that 800 m is rather a long way - but each one made it to the finish line.
They also participated in 100m, high jump, long jump, shotput and relay. The special moments on the podium receiveing their medals will be remembered by all for a long time. Really proud moments shared by all.

A total of 33 medals were won by our learners at the two events.
11 Gold, 5 Silver, 17 Bronze. 17 Fourth position certificates, 7 Fifth place certificates.
