Blessed George Napier Family Quadkids

The annual Year 3/4 and 5/6 Quadkids Athletics competitions for the BGN Family of Primary Schools took place on Monday 11th June at Blessed George Napier Catholic School.  In glorious sunshine over one hundred and fifty children and seventeen teams from six Primary Schools including Bishop Loveday, Cropredy, Orchard Fields, St. John’s,  St. Joseph’s and William Morris take part.  The event was expertly supported by thirty-one Year 8 and 9 BGN student sport leaders. 

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 Respect was a focus area and a young athlete from each team was presented with a special certificate to recognise their good sportsmanship displayed throughout the competition.

Congratulations to Bishop Loveday ‘B’ who took the team honours in the Year 3/4 competition with their teammates, Bishop Loveday ‘A’ narrowly beating St. Joseph’s ‘A’ into second place.  Cropredy ‘A’ finished first in the Year 5/6 competition with Orchard Fields taking runner-up spot.  Congratulations also to the individual winners; Seb (Cropredy ‘A’) and Atena (St. Joseph’s ‘A’) in the Year 3/4 competition and Fergus (Cropredy ‘B’) and Milli (Orchard Fields) 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 Tuesday 19th June at The Warriner School.
