Last Wednesday was my first experience of the Stanley Ave Athletics Day… and what a day it was! The weather turned up and it felt like a hot summer’s day. I was working on the long jump activity which involved a lot of measuring. Some jumps were ridiculously long, others weren’t, but the key thing was that all jumpers thoroughly enjoyed themselves. Props to Mrs Silvester, Liam, Upoks and the Silvester girls for their hard work helping out with the activity. The highlight, of course, was the parent-staff-student relay. I was given the impossible task of trying to catch Mr Byers and although I tried my hardest, could not narrow the gap! Overall I was really impressed with how well the students behaved, from juniors to seniors, and the sun continued to shine throughout the day.
