With the crowd in good spirits, Mr Andrew Elliot, the school Principal reminded the secondary students of how events such as the school's Sports Day are driven by Bloomsbury's guiding statements. Physical fitness (which is promoted via sports and PE occasions) is regarded as an essential life skill, and the teamwork and shared purpose potential of participating in Sports Day via Bloomsbury's house system represents an important way in which the school value statement that encourages a sense of pride in belonging to the school community, of loyalty, of unity and of shared purpose can be realised.
Day two of Sports Day at Bloomsbury was another lively afternoon. Up until the half way mark all teams where perilously close to each other with Turner holding the lead. The hacky sack lob proved to be a fun and hard fought event by all. In the final few events, Nightingale seemed to step up a gear started to dominate. This resulted in them stretching out away from Turner and Einstein who finished joint second. Well done to all who took part and this year’s secondary champions, Nightingale!
Once again, a big thank you to the Parent’s Committee for the refreshments and all the parents who came to support the two days.
