BGN Year 2 Multi-skills

One hundred and seventy-five Year 2 children participated in the BGN Family multi-skills festival held at Blessed George Napier Catholic School on Wednesday 27th April 2016.  This event involved children from Cropredy, Hardwick, Orchard Fields, St. John’s and St. Joseph’s 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.  Nineteen teams were divided into four separate heats. St. John’s were victorious in three out of the four heats with their A team winning heat 1, C team winning heat 3 and D team winning heat 4 respectively.  St. Joseph’s B won heat 2.

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-six Year 8 and Year 10 BGN leaders who provided a positive experience for all competitors and took on various roles including track judges, scorers, equipment managers and demonstrations.  Thank you also to three Year 5 Orchard Fields Young leaders who took on the team manager role for their School.
