Students at Pimlico Academy took part in two Sports Days last week, and the Academy's houses Hera, Zeus, Apollo and Athena got into the competitive spirit. The sports days are always an exciting event and the culmination of a year-long house sport competition with thousands of points and hundreds of medals up for grabs.
The weather forecast looked perfect (for once), the PE Department were ready to rock and roll, the loud speakers had batteries in and everything was colour coordinated in house colours ready for the battle to commence.
The house sport competition is always close and students took part in numerous events in order to win points for their house. The list of events is as follows: tug of war, rounders, 100m, 400m, javelin, shot putt, long jump, nerf throw, obstacle race and the 4x100m relay.
There were some fantastic performances from many students, both at the track at Battersea and at school, where students were ready to roll their sleeves up, and prove which house was the strongest in each year!
The students were an absolute credit to themselves, their year group and their house and all deserve a big well done for their participation and fantastic attitude during the day.
