Year 8 North Devon Schools Indoor Athletics Winners

The North Devon Schools Indoor Athletics competition took place at GTS on Friday 19th January. The team comprised of 6 boys and 6 girls with a reserve each. The events that they took part in included shot putt, standing long jump, vertical jump, speed bounce and a number of track relay races.

Massive congratulations to all who took part as Park won the event out of seven other local schools! They will now go on to represent North Devon in the county indoor athletics event on the 22nd of February in Plymouth.

The year 8 mixed team came 2nd in the North Devon competition, which meant they travelled to Plymouth Life Centre in February to represent North Devon in the County Championships. Out of sixteen teams they came a very creditable 10th. They came up against some outstanding athletes. All the team produced their best performances, particularly Millie Ayres and Rupert Pocock who both came 2nd in the six lap run.

North Devon Schools Athletics Championships 2015

Wednesday 13th May saw an impressive display of talent from Park School compete in the North Devon Schools Athletics Championships at the Braunton Athletics Track. Not only was the sun out for us but we had the winning bug as well!

We took 4 teams; Junior Boys & Girls (Yr8 & 9) and Inter Boys & Girls (Yr10 & 11). With a unique event like Athletics, the students have to ensure that they arrive at their event on time and watch the results carefully to see if they qualify for the final.
