Athletics Final

23rd February 2023

A team of year 6 & 5 children travelled to Beacon Academy this week to take part in the Wealden Area Sports hall Athletics Final. They competed against 5 other schools (the winners for the local area competitions) in sprints, endurance and obstacle races alongside traditional field events including javelin, long jump and vertical jump. 
The competition was fierce but the children dug deep, supported and encouraged each other. Wivelsfield finished in joint third place - an amazing achievement especially when you consider 62 teams started in the first round of the competition.
