Quad Athletics Competition @ New River Sports Centre

Once again St. Ignatius have come back from a competition with medals!!

24 schools from across Haringey gathered at New River Community Sports Centre in Wood Green to participate in the annual Quad Athletics Competition.

All teams consisted of 4 girls and 4 boys from Year 6 that had to compete in 5 different events; Javelin, Sprint race, Standing Long Jump, long distance run and a team relay.

Our athletes performed excellently in every event and the encouragement that they gave each other was awe inspiring to all that witnessed it.  The event organisers and adults from other schools, were very impressed by our children’s attitude and focus during each event and their sportsman/woman-ship to the other participants.

We were so unlucky not to finish in first place, as the points gap between 3rd, where we finished, and first was only 20 points.

Guys, we may have finished 3rd, but in my opinion you’ll always be number 1!

Mr Henry
