‘Cornwall School Games – here we come’

Year 4 Quadkids athletics success: Friday 10th May 2019

Congratulations to the eight children who competed at Carn Brea in the quadkids athletics event.

Each child participated in the following events: 50m sprint, 300m run, standing long jump and standing vortex throw. Points were scored for distances thrown and jumped, and times on the track.

Out of the 28 schools attending, we were delighted to hear that our team had finished top and had therefore qualified for the Cornwall School Games, to be held at Bodmin College at the end of June 2019.

Team: Felix, Barnaby, William, Maddox, Lucy, Clara, Lilly, Evie

Many thanks to Suzanne Darling for her photographs of the event.
