Banbury Academy G+T SHA

137 Year 5&6 children competed at Banbury Academy’s second Sportshall Athletics event of the year on Thursday 9th February.  The children from Dashwood, Queensway, The Grange, Hanwell Fields, St. Mary’s, St. Leonard’s and Hillview primary schools took part throwing, jumping and running events which were run by Year 9 Banbury Academy Young Leaders. 

The morning was highly competitive and there were some very exciting races.  The final totals were extremely close with just 14 points between 2nd and 3rd positions and 4 points between 1st and 2nd!  Congratulations to Hillview who finished in 1st place, Hanwell Fields who finished in 2nd place and Dashwood who finished in 3rd place. 

There was a fantastic atmosphere during the event with the children being extremely supportive of each other.  Passion was the focus Spirit of the Games value and there was certainly lots of it! Congratulations to the 14 children who received special passion awards at the end of the festival.   Accompanying adults commented that the 25 leaders were “fantastic and very efficient”.  Well done to all of them for doing such a great job. 

Best of luck to Hillview will now go forward to represent the Banbury Academy cluster at the partnership finals on Wednesday 22nd February at Blessed George Napier Catholic School.
