Junior School Sports Day

Last Friday saw our Junior School pupils put through their paces at their annual Primary Sports Day. While Transitus 1 and 2 braved the rain for their track and filed events, the Nursery and Junior School competed inside in the main Sports Hall.

With the High Jump taking part the previous day to free up space in the hall for the Nursery and Junior School events all the Transitus pupils were encouraged to try their very hardest to achieve a new ‘personal best’ performance in the different running (400m or 800m, 200m & 60m), throwing (shot Putt) and jumping (Long Jump) events throughout the day. Points were awarded for every event and these points went towards the respective Individual Championships, as well as counting towards the overall House Championship.

In the T1 Girls Competition, Minnie T. (Bergius) was first with 33 points beating Gabriella O.  (Colquhoun) into second with 28 points, Robin F. (Graham) finished third with 14 points. In the T1 Boys, Josh F. (Bergius) won the Individual Championship with 33 points, second place went to Fergus M. (Colquhoun) with 17 points who beat Cameron B. (Bergius) into third place with 13 points.

Meanwhile in the T2 Girls Competition, Romy T. (Bergius) was first with 36 points beating Mathilde M. (Colquhoun) and Marianne R. (Bergius) who were joint second with 19 points each.  In the T2 Boys, Archie F. (Colquhoun) won the Individual Championship with 27 points, a close second place went to Isaac M. (Bergius) with 26 points and third place was awarded to Oscar J. (Graham) with 18 points.

As is tradition the House 4 x 100m relays brought the event to a close with Bergius taking the honours this year beating Colquhoun into second and Graham into third.

Retiring after 34 years of teaching, this year’s guest of honour, Mr David Dodson, presented the prizes to the individual winners, followed by the House Shield which this year went to Bergius with an average score of 17.53 points, second were Colquhoun with an average score of 14.70 points and third were Graham with an average score of 10.15 points.

Overall, a very successful event with the pupils, staff, helpers and supporters all able to enjoy the performances of the pupils on the day despite the unfavourable weather.  A big thank you to all staff and senior pupils who helped on the day and also to Mrs Kershaw-Yates and the PTA for organising the refreshments and BBQ and of course the Bake-Off, won this year by Hannah and Holly A.
