Winners of the Blackpool, Wyre and Fylde Athletics 2024

The Athletics Team from Years 5 and 6 won the Blackpool, Wyre and Fylde Athletics Competition last night! This is the first time we have won the entire competition, beating 11 other schools on the evening, and finishing first overall out of the 71 schools eligible to participate. The team now go on to represent Wyre at the Lancashire Final on Tuesday 12th March (1.30pm to 4.30pm). The children won the event with a record score, by a record margin, and winning a record 16 of the 24 events (finishing in 2nd or 3rd place in 6 of the other 8 events!).

This is an incredible achievement, and is a result of their hard work, skill, dedication, perseverance, tenacity and commitment.

We take great pride in such achievements, especially when competing with schools with many more children!

The importance of athletics in our school cannot be underestimated, as this helps give the children the confidence and stamina in lots of other sports and disciplines, both in and out of
school.

Congratulations to all of the team, and we would like to thank the parents for their incredible support last night (and all year), and this could not happen without the dedication, patience
and guidance of Mr Cooke and Mrs Saraswathy.
