BGN Family Quadkids

The annual Year 3/4 and 5/6 Quadkids Athletics competitions for the BGN Family of Primary Schools took place on Thursday 23rd June at Blessed George Napier Catholic School.  One hundred and thirty-five children and seventeen teams from four Primary Schools including Cropredy, Hardwick, St. John’s and St. Joseph’s took part.  The event was expertly supported by thirty Year 7 and 9 BGN student sport leaders and PE staff.

The Quadkids format enables children of primary school age to have fun participating in the core disciplines of running, jumping and throwing. All athletes completed a quadrathlon, competing in four events; the sprint over 75 metres or 50 metres, the run over 600 metres or 400 metres, the standing long jump and the vortex howler throw. Results were recorded and totalled to find the best all-round athletes and teams. The children had a great time and there were some high quality performances

During the competitions, the Spirit of the Games value of determination was a focus area and a young athlete from each team was presented with a special certificate to recognise the high level of determination they had shown.

Congratulations to St. John’s A who took the team honours in the Year 3/4 competition with Cropredy A taking runners-up spot.  Cropredy took the top two places in the Year 5/6 competition with Cropredy A beating Cropredy B to first place.  Congratulations also to the individual winners; Amelia (St. John’s A) and Jake A (St. John’s A) in the Year 3/4 competition and Vanessa (Cropredy A) and Jordan (Cropredy A) in the Year 5/6 competition.  The first and second placed teams and the first three girls and boys in each age group have qualified for the North Oxfordshire School Sport Partnership Quadkids Final which will take place on Friday 1st July at The Cooper School.
