Sportshall Athletics competition

On Tuesday 3rd March Burleigh entered the exciting Sportshall Athletics Competition, which was held at Wodson Park, Ware.  Sportshall Athletics is an exciting team competition which focuses on indoor athletics - team sprints, relays, hurdles and field events, including chest push, standing long jump and speed bounce.  Overall, there were 13 schools in total and the competition was extremely challenging!  The children performed magnificently, with each child giving their all in their event.  The boys and girls won three of their six heats in the team relays.  This put us in a strong position to finish in the top five.  When the results were announced, our boys had finished in the 5th place and the girls an impressive 2nd place!

It was an amazing effort by everyone involved, and the entire school is very proud of the children's achievements and how they conducted themselves at the event.
