BGN Family Quadkids Athletics

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 15th June at Blessed George Napier Catholic School.  A record turnout saw two hundred and twenty children and twenty-two teams from five Primary Schools including Bishop Loveday, Hardwick, Orchard Fields, St. John’s and St. Joseph’s take part.  The event was expertly supported by thirty-one Year 8 and 9 BGN student sport leaders and NOSSP 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 their teammates, St. John’s ‘B’ narrowly beating Hardwick ‘A’ into second place.  Bishop Loveday finished first in the Year 5/6 competition with St. Joseph’s ‘A’ taking runner-up spot.   Congratulations also to the individual winners; Summer (St. John’s ‘A’) and Liam (Orchard Fields ‘A’ ) in the Year 3/4 competition and Zaide  (Bishop Loveday) and Olivia (Bishop Loveday) 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 Wednesday 28th June at The Cooper School.

“Young leaders really engaged and encouraged our children.” (Teacher at Bishop Loveday)
