As a PE department I don’t think the pupils will ever appreciate how much we value them and their attitude at fixtures. To spend the day with 50 pupils at York Athletics Stadium and not have to speak to one student about their conduct on the day, keeping things tidy or being respectful to other schools was truly heart warming for us as teachers. Not only that but after a long day in the hot sun and then a 45-minute bus journey home when we were all tired and too hot, not one moan or whinge from any pupil is often unheard of!

Mr Farrell and I would like to thank all those that took part for making the day so easy for us to run, for looking after each other as well as pupils from other school and just for being so unbelievable outstanding for the whole day.

So the day itself….I decided that just in case the pupils had never been to York before I would give the bus driver the wrong postcode so we had a little tour before we arrived at the stadium. After a bit of a rush start the events got underway with pupils steadily performing their events throughout the day. It was a really hot day for all the pupils and staff but the day ran smoothly with the relays finishing off the day at 2.30pm.

Although Whitby and Ryedale were the overall winners for the event we had some brilliant individual performances with a staff member from Malton school coming to ask us what our secret was with our sprinters as they were giving Ryedale a run for their money. Well done to all involved.
