BGN Family Year 2 Multi-skills

Two hundred and fifty Year 2 children participated in the BGN Family multi-skills festivals held at Blessed George Napier Catholic School on Thursday 16th November 2017.  Teams competed in various relay races including bean bag, rugby, scoop, obstacle, hurdles and baton relays.  The morning festival involved fourteen teams from Cropredy, St. John’s, St. Joseph’s and William Morris Primary Schools and the afternoon festival involved thirteen teams from Bishop Loveday, Hardwick and Orchard Fields Primary Schools.

Competition was fierce across all races with lots of passion and determination on display.  Enjoyment amongst participants and adults was also evident with enthusiastic cheering and support almost raising the roof of the sportshall.

The first festival saw St. John’s A win all six races to win heat 1.  Likewise, St. John’s C also won all six races to top heat 2.  Cropredy C and William Morris C both finished joint first in heat 3. 

In the second festival Bishop Loveday won heat 1, winning 4 out of 6 races.  Bishop Loveday C won heat 2.  Hardwick C and Orchard Fields D shared runners-up spot in heat 3 with Bishop Loveday E taking top spot.

During the festivals, the Spirit of the Games value ‘Determination’ 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-one Year 9 BGN student young leaders who provided a positive experience for all competitors and took on various roles including track judges, scorers, equipment managers and demonstrations.  .  

Congratulations to all children, young leaders, teachers and additional adults who all contributed to two very fun and enjoyable festivals.
