A great night of athletics! Thank you to Westholme for travelling over for the fixture and to all the KGJS staff and Senior School DofE pupils who assisted with the officiating.

The previous week KGJS hosted AKS and Broughton Primary School with every one of the races producing thrilling finishes and every athlete should be proud of their performances.

On Tuesday7 May, their first athletics match of the season. KGJS welcomed Scarisbrick Hall and St Mary's Hall to join the thirty seven KGJS pupils in a track match. Twenty eight races took place which included hurdles, sprints, middle distance, sprint relays and medley relays. KGJS pupils performed very well and recorded two very pleasing wins against tough opposition.
