On Friday the 3rd of July our Yr 8 Sports day took place here at Prestfelde. Mr. Newey, Mr. Harvey, Mrs. Johnson, and Mr. Granger were excited to see for the last time our Yr8’s compete in the different events.
Jack one of our Yr 8 Leavers who competes for Shropshire in Athletics was determined to beat the 1500 metre record. This record was set by an Old Prestfeldian O.Laws back in 1992. Jack had to beat the time of 4 minutes 50 seconds. Jack completed the 1500m in 4 minutes and 37 seconds, smashing the record by 13 seconds. He ran so well and definitely has a bright future as an athlete. Good Luck at Shrewsbury School in September and well done!
It was so lovely to see our Yr8 leavers supporting each other through every event, and seeing them all run to the finish line to support Jack in the last 100 metres.
