Sports Day 2013
For the first time in about five years we managed to have a whole school sports day; and what a great day it was! We bussed ourselves over to Kingsmead on the Wirral, which is a lovely school with a wonderful sports field. There was plenty of space for all our individual races and relays; as well as long jump, shot putt, cricket and a penalty shoot out. Lots of parents came to support us, wearing house colours and cheering us on.
We started promptly at 12:30pm, maybe even a couple of minutes early and the races continued solidly until 3:30pm. It appeared to go like clockwork. We all took it very seriously but there was a lot of good humour about. The fun races were great, some looked quite daft but they needed a lot of team cooperation to get right. The compass race looked rather complicated but brilliantly executed and Year 10 wellie race was quite hairy (or rather squelchy)! The Lower School races were a delight to watch, especially the sack races which looked so energetic.
Bethel and Penuel appeared to be neck and neck for most of the afternoon but as Miss Lord announced the winners, Bethel had inched to the number one spot and some very proud house captains lifted the winners trophy. The winners of the sportsmanship cup were Penuel, but all the houses were commended for a great effort and doing a great job of supporting one another.
Thank you to Kingsmead for their hospitality, Mr Greaves for masterminding the whole operation, to the the dedicated staff and volunteers for ensuring that everything went so smoothly, parents and friends for supporting us and of course all our CFS pupils who took part, and made the whole event so worthwhile. What a great end to the summer term!
