Merseyside Paralympic Panathlon June 26th 2019
On 26th June, 15 of our Year 9 students represented the school at the annual 'Panathlon' in Wavertree Sports Complex in Liverpool. Luke, Elliott, Ethan, Harvey, Nathan, Matthew, Brandon, Bailey, Matthew, Nathan, Sam, Alfie, Max, Luke and Harry took part in multiple sports including Wheelchair Basketball, Boccia, New-Age Kurling, Football, Basketball and Athletics. The event was attended by 8 schools from across Merseyside.
Our basketball team gained bronze medals in the morning event and we had multiple medals in the athletics; Luke M (Gold), Harvey (Silver) and Ethan (Bronze) with the highlight being a 38.3m 'vortex'
throw by Luke. The Boccia squad did brilliantly too winning some of their games.
In the afternoon our football squad finished runners-up in their pool (Silver) and the New Age Kurling team were champions! All of the boys behaved impeccably all day and it was great to see some real teamwork skills developing throughout all of the activities and squads.
Well done boys!
