Sports Day 2018 Report
The 2018 Bury Church Sports Day took place on Tuesday 19th June in the afternoon. This was a whole school event on the school field with all students either competing or spectating. Some events had to take place on Monday 18th June. It was fantastic to see so many students competing for their form groups. There was a great atmosphere on the school field for Sports Day 2018.
Form groups in each year group competed against each other with a form group from every year group winning overall.
For the first time this year we also have an overall champion based on form groups from different year groups working together to gain points. The forms that worked together from different year groups were all linked to ‘Christian Sporting Role Models’.
Some new and more inclusive events were introduced for Sports Day 2018 with the sack race and tug of war taking place.
Mr Dorey also returned to watch Sports Day 2018 and it was great to him see back at school following his retirement from teaching last summer. Overall Sports Day 2018 went really well and a big thank you must go to all the staff and students in school.
