Report by Mr McArthur & Mrs Butel
Our team of girls and boys competed at Stowmarket Leisure Centre in the area
finals of this year's indoor athletics event. Against 5 other qualifying
schools from the Thurston and Stowmarket regions, we were hoping to win
through to the County Finals - matching the achievement of last year's
Ixworth Primary School team.
In the end, with super determination and impressive individual and team
efforts in both track and field events, we managed 5th place, with a team
score of 158 points; this was nearly 20 points more than our total in
securing third place at the locality round a few weeks ago - so our extra
training clearly paid off! The children did particularly well on the track:
in the short sprints and obstacle relay (1st place finishes in our heat) and
over/under relay and 6-lap Paarlauf (2nd place).
Well done to everyone who represented our school with such skill and
