Athletics Competition in Elche

18th January 18

Last Friday January 10 we were very lucky to be invited to Elche athletics stadium to compete in an athletics competition against 4 other International Schools including Kings College Alicante, Kings College Murcia, Laude Newton College and Elians.

The pupils took part in the sprint events; 100m,200m, 300m, 400m and the relays, the throwing events; shot putt, discus and javelin and the jumping events; long jump and high jump.
One person from each school competed for points in each event although we had extra runners competing in the distance events to improve their own performance times.

The boys and girls teams consisted of; year 7, years 8 and 9 and years 10 and 11.

It was a very rewarding experience for everyone, helped by superb weather conditions for competing. Our school is very competent on the track but many were trying the field events for the first time and enjoyed the challenge of new experiences.

Our sincere thanks go to Laude Newton College for organising such an excellent competition.
