A huge congratulations to the 9 boys and 9 girls from St Joseph's who competed today in the Sports Hall Athletics Area Finals held at Bridgwater College. Each of the children had to compete in two track relay events and two field events (standing long jump, standing triple jump, vertical jump, speed stepper, chest push and javelin). As you can imagine, assigning each child their best event was logistically challenging and to make make matters even more difficult, there were unfortunately 5 absentees due to illness! But this is a wonderful group of children at St Joseph's and even with a number of changes to events and new children being drafted in at the last minute, the team fought off competition from seven other schools and finished in a remarkable 3rd place, taking the bronze medal and only 2 points away from silver!! A TRULY MAGNIFICENT EFFORT TEAM - WELL DONE!!
