The annual Sports Day took place in warm sunshine. Pupils cheered their friends on as they competed in a variety of running races, from sprints to long distance and including the exciting relays. While the races were taking place, other girls participated in the long jump and shot put. High jump, discus and javelin competitions were held earlier in the day.

The afternoon began with the Staff Relay, which is now a popular tradition in the Girls’ Division. In six teams, members of staff raced around the track with pupils lending their vocal support.

Fabeha Shafaat in Year 9 collected donations after the relay. Earlier in the term, she had spoken to the whole school in assembly about Oxfam’s work and how important water is for survival. She said, “The initial idea of the assembly came from the charity that I volunteer at, Oxfam, as they requested me to be the ambassador at my school. I promised them that I would try to raise awareness by doing an assembly and raise a little bit of money from an event too.

“This donation will be used to provide clean, safe-drinking water for water vulnerable people in the world.”

The Staff Relay raised £100 for Oxfam.
