City Sports Trials

On the 12 th April the whole school went to the tank field to try out for the city sports. The first age group to start was 2011, they all lined up on the starting line and all ran! They were like bullets! All giving it their all and bolting towards the end around 60 meters away from them. Next were 2012 doing the same; lining up and running. They were faster as expected and the race was over way quicker! Every year went after each other until 2005. The winners were chosen straight after their race and were given a green or orange leaflets, green meaning you were running in the city sports and orange meaning you are a substitute just in case anything happened (Such as if someone was sick or injured). The people who got the green leaflets were   and the people who got the orange leaflets were  . The day was great and many people were happy with the result.
