On Your Marks, Get Set, Go!

Forty-eight children from Years 3 to 8 made it through the rigorous training schedules and athletics trials to represent Farleigh at the first Athletics Meeting at Yateley Manor.

Competing against Eagle House and Yateley Manor's A and B teams, the children took part in a range of track and field events. There were so many gutsy performances - from the Year 3s at their first ever athletics event to the well-seasoned athletes in Years 7 and 8. Our fabulous competitors were determined in the throwing and jumping, and dominated on the track. This really was a great team performance with many 1sts, 2nds and Personal Bests; the overwhelming sense of achievement was palpable by both staff and children - they truly captured the Farleigh spirit.

The commitment and enthusiasm exhibited by the team laid the foundations for what promises to be a fantastic athletics season and we are all looking forward to Farleigh Athletics, the next event on the horizon.
