Borough Athletics Stars!

It gives me great pleasure to inform you that yesterday's (26 June) Borough Athletics event was a great success for Kingsley Academy.

We left school at lunchtime to go up to Osterley Athletics track with a team of 24 students from years 9 & 10 with quite a lot of nerves and anticipation, but this was to be unfounded.

The support the students gave each other was amazing with one of students actually helping to teach students from other schools the triple jump technique! They were given the responsibility of organising their relay teams - Paris had even sorted the team and order before I even spoke to her! 

Mr Bevan, Mr Pitts, Ms McCutcheon and myself were all impressed by the responsibility and independence each student took for getting to their event on time as well as making sure that each other got to their event on time, and cheering and supporting each other when they were performing.
