Welcome to Sir Robert Hitcham CEVAP School, Debenham
Suffolk School Games - July 2016
We arrived at Bury where we were given our competitors accreditation, everybody was very proud to be wearing their lanyards to go through security. Then we took part in the opening ceremony where there was dancing, singing and speeches to open the games. After that we all paraded around the track proudly holding our team flags.
The swimmers and athletes were the first teams to compete. There were many fantastic performances on the track, most competitors finishing in the first five in their races. Nico was the fastest boy in the 600m, winning the race with a fantastic sprint finish. The mixed relay team worked as a team with excellent change overs, meaning they won their heat.
In the pool, under Mr Daly’s coaching, the swimmers were producing some excellent swims, finally finishing fourth, three points behind third place. An excellent performance from the team.
The final team to compete were the gymnasts, who being the youngest were full of nerves, they competed well and finished seventh. The seventh best team in Suffolk! This would not have been possible without Mrs Jones, who has coached and organised the team.
