31 Jan Year 2 Sports Hall Athletics
On Wednesday 25th January 2017, Havering Sports Collective held the Year 2 Sports Hall athletics competition at Hornchurch Sports Centre.
Twenty one schools took part in the event which saw the participants compete across 6 activities of jumping, bowling, bouncing, stepping, launching and throwing. The children were a real credit to their schools, exhibiting excellent sporting behaviour with their enthusiasm, encouragement and respect for one another and the leaders.
Eddie Parsons from Sportshall UK did an outstanding job of running the event, keeping it to time and most importantly making sure everyone was having fun. Assisting Eddie in the smooth running of the day were Year 8 sports leaders from the Collective leadership academy. The young leaders from Emerson Park, Hall Mead, Gaynes, Coopers, Frances Bardsley and Marshalls Park played a vital role in supporting the children and ensuring they fully understood the activities.
A special mention must be given to all of the spectators who came along to cheer on the children. The stands were over flowing – a fantastic turn out!
Overall winners of the competition were Benhurst, followed by Towers and Ardleigh Green Infants. Congratulations to Benhurst and well done to all of the teams who took part in this terrific event.
Sharon Phillips from Havering Sports Collective concludes “I would like to add a thank you to Everyone Active for continuing to host our events at Hornchurch Sports Centre, to the secondary schools for supplying the young leaders and to the parents and teachers for their support”
