On Tuesday 19 June, the Junior School travelled to Stretford Athletics Stadium in Manchester to take part in the annual AJIS Athletics Championships. The competition is always very strong as some of the best schools in the North West are involved. Over 25 schools entered and everyone was blessed with glorious weather which was matched by scintillating performances from all the Kirkham athletes. Pride of place must go to our gold medallist, Leo Pareskeva who won the U10 boys High Jump.

Listed below are the medallists, however, everyone performed very well with many athletes making finals and just missing out on medals. This was just reward as they have all worked very hard at lunch and evening training sessions.

Kirkham hosting three successful fixtures also acted as perfect preparation for the championships.
