CHAFYN GROVE - SALISBURY
Sports Day took place on one of the hottest days of the year. Despite the heat our pupils competed with the usual enthusiasm, determination and enjoyment we expect from Chafyn Grove. It is to their credit that every event ran smoothly – the pupils knew where to be and what to expect. It was particularly impressive to watch how well they dealt with adversity. A number of pupils fell during the hurdles – but not one gave up! Picking themselves off the floor they all finished the race – a life lesson as well as a sporting one. Impressive also was watching each Eight run their relays – having limited time to practice each team ran fluently and the change overs reflected thought and understanding between the individual runners – well done all, a true team effort. The applause they received at the presentations was warm and heartfelt – again this reflects the values that are so important in sport. Lastly a special congratulations to those who broke school records – the Olympic motto of Hendiatris Citius, Altius, Fortius, or ‘Faster, Higher, stronger’ is alive and well!
