Sports Hall Athletics

Well done to our Sports Hall Athletics Heat winners!

Well done to our Year 5 & 6 athletes who ran, jumped and threw superbly to win our inter-school partnership local Sports Hall Athletics heat! 

Garsington Primary will be going on to the South Oxford District Final in February!

20 or so athletes from Garsington represented the school in the local heat at Wheatley Park Sports Centre and they put on a solid sporting show. Strong individual and team performances helped notch up the points and together the team bagged first place, just ahead of Horspath Primary. 

An excited and very proud Mrs Theobalds (Y5 Teacher & Sports Lead) and Mr Guy (TA & Sports Club Leader) were delighted with the team's performance and their representation of the school. 

Mrs Theobalds said "The children behaved in a very sportsman like way and showed great determination and team spirit!"

Teachers and pupils alike are already planning training for the South Oxon District Final on 24th February at Icknield. We wish them lots of luck!

What is Sports Hall Athletics?

Sportshall Athletics Competitions take place annually each winter and are organised in conjunction with the School Sports Partnership. The competitions are targeted at those in Years 5 & 6 and teams will include both boys and girls, with a minimum of 9 and a maximum of 12 pupils of each gender. 

The competitions will consist of both track and field events including javelin, chest push, speed bounce, vertical jump, standing jump and triple jump.

The competitions start in January and there are six local heat competitions. The teams who finish first and second at each of these venues will be invited to attend the South Oxfordshire District Final at Icknield Community College on Friday 24th February. The winner and runner up of the District Final will represent South Oxfordshire
at the School Games in April.
