Sports Day 2018

Sports Day 2018

Sports day this year was a huge success and the first time we've done something quite like this. The start of the day consisted of Handball, Netball, Dodge ball, Football and Rounders. Nearer the end of the day, both pupils and staff took part in a range of activities ranging in competitiveness. These were races such as Egg & Spoon, Relay, Three-Legged and an Obstacle course.

Today we welcomed an elite deaf football player who has had the opportunity to compete in a World Cup, the Deaflympics and four Champions League campaigns. Being that the England squad has been playing so well in this world cup and Albany Academy have an upcoming sports day, the pupils were really eager to get involved with today’s activities.
