St. Mary’s and Chesterton Primary Schools competing in various relay races including bean bag, rugby, scoop obstacle and hurdles relays. 

Competition was fierce across all races with lots of effort, determination and enjoyment on display.  Teams were divided into four heats of six teams.  In heat 1 St. Mary’s ‘A’ just edged out Southwold ‘A’ by a single point to take top spot.  Heat 2 was also closely contested with Bure Park ‘B’ beating St. Mary’s ‘B’ also by a single point to come first.  St. Mary’s ‘C’ won heat 3 and Bure Park ‘F’ were victorious in Heat 4. 

During the festival, the Spirit of the Games value ‘Passion’ was a key focus area.  One member from each team was was presented with a special certificate to recognise their positive attitude and enthusiasm throughout the festival. 

Thank you to twenty-four Key Stage 3 Student Leaders from the Bicester School who provided a positive experience for all competitors and took on various roles including track judges, scorers, equipment managers and demonstrations.
