West Town Lane Wanderers have been preparing for this event for a number of weeks, Mr Brown and Mrs Roe prepared two teams to enter the event. All of our children from both teams produced a number of amazing performances in a number of events which consisted of Standing long jump, 600 metre race, howler throw and a 60 metre sprint. A number of our children produced personal bests on a scorching hot day, our “A team” left the event finishing in Bronze position and out “B team” achieved a very respectable 8th place.
Well done guys, and a big thank you to Mr Brown and Mrs Roe.
Our Tag Rugby players took part in a tournament this morning. Well done to the team- no medals, but great playing!
