Sports Evening was a huge success

The annual Sports Evening took place this year on Thursday 13th July albeit a new and improved version. There were new events such as 3000m and 4x400m relay as well as a summer fete where there was an opportunity to 'hook-a-duck' and 'splat-the-teacher'.

On the track it was a momentous occasion as senior school pupils competed for the first time and it was superb to see the first ever girls race at STRS. The 100m senior boys' race was much anticipated and it lived up to the billing with Oli Thomas taking the title, to add to his 200m victory, in an impressive 11.88 seconds. As a result of his sprint double he was named athlete of the evening.

In regards to the House title, it was very close but Westgate claimed the title followed by Northgate and Eastgate in tied second.

Our thanks to all those who supported the event, especially the Parents Association and the staff. And of course congratulations to all of the competitors.
