At St John’s we believe that every person is called to live life to the full: whole and complete, conscious of their relationship with God and with humanity and never was that more evident than at Sports Day today.
In the morning everyone worked in teams to gain as many points as possible for their House Saint. Children across year groups supported each other to stack at speed, complete obstacle courses, toss bean bags and score lacrosse goals. Parents were “volunteered” to take part by their children. It was so much fun and all in the glorious sunshine.
The points were all added up and it was time for the winners to be announced:
Was it St Bernadette or maybe St Peter, perhaps St Lucy or even the dark horse of St Francis?
The final scores were:St Peter 2106 points, St Francis 2178 points, St Bernadette 2226 points and St Lucy were the winners with 2298.
A picnic lunch made the most of the beautiful weather before the fun races of the afternoon began. Potato, egg and spoon, three-legged and skipping races were enjoyed by children and adults alike with some spirited performances by some of our more athletic parents.
A fantastic day due to the many hours of hard work and planning by Mr Baker. Thanks Mr B and we can’t wait until next year.
