Sports day 2023

Senior School

Over the last week the annual sports days for pupils from year 7-10 took place. Pupils came and took part in sports events that included high jump, shot put, running and tug of war.

Over 300 pupils represented their houses from across the four year groups. This year four previous school records were broken! In year 7, Lauren Koutsogianni and Katerina Zagoridou broke the school records for year 7 high jump and shot put respectively. Lauren managed to jump an incredible 1.36m breaking the previous school record (1.33) which stood since 2018. Katerina broke the year 7 girls shot put record that stood since 2012 (7.37)by throwing the shot put 7.41m!

In year 8, the boys and girls high jump records were broken by George Depolo and Sofia Mikati respectively. Sofia Mikati achieved a magnificent jump of 1.44m breaking the record previously standing since 2013(1.37). George Depolo smashed the record from 2019 by 12cm as he jumped an astounding 1.64m.

All sports days finished with fun and big smiles as pupils from opposing houses showed off their strength trying to pull the other team across the finish line in the tug of war event.

Well done to all those who took part and cheered from the stands. Thank you to the parents in attendance who witnessed all the entertaining events. And a special congratulations to the four pupils who managed to set new school records!
