On a glorious day in Blackpool, Kirkham Grammar Junior School took part in the annual AJIS Athletics Championships which involved over 20 schools from throughout the North West. The competition is always very strong and each member of the team had trained really hard in lessons, lunchtimes and evenings and were eager to perform and represent the school with pride.

They did not let themselves down and achieved the following performances:

Ben Firth U10 Boys Hurdles
Harry Case U10 Boys High Jump
Jenson Stott, Mason Wilkins, Ben Firth & Harry Case U10 Boys 4 x 100m Relay
James Stacey U11 Boys Cricket Ball Throw
James Stacey U11 Boys Hurdles
Mason Wilkins U10 Boys 150m
Evie Mellon U10 Girls High Jump
Alexander Kane U11 Boys Long Jump
Mason Wilkins U10 Boys Long Jump
Ewan Huck U10 Boys Cricket Ball Throw
Harvey Barber U10 Boys 600m
Lilly Jones U10 Girls 80m
Frankie Margerison U10 Girls 150m

Everyone performed really well and were a credit to the school and Mr Oddie and Mrs Farquharson are really proud of their achievements. We would also like to thank Rossall School for organising the Championship which ran very smoothly.

U9 Cricket v St Mary’s Hall

An enjoyable game of Cricket was played on Friday 9 June featuring our U9 boys against St Mary’s Hall, with everyone being given the  opportunity to bowl and bat. Thank you to St Mary’s Hall for being excellent hosts and to all the parents who came along to support.

U11 Boys & Girls Athletics v AKS

Great performances were seen from all the athletes when Kirkham went head to head with AKS for an Athletics match on    Monday. The event was a perfect warm up event ready for the AJIS Athletics Championships that took place later in the week. The final scores were KGJS Boys 100 - AKS boys 54 and KGJS Girls 94 - AKS Girls 61. Thank you to all the parents who came along to support.

AJIS Rounders

Well done to KGJS U10 girls who finished 3rd in the AJIS Rounders Plate Competition on Wednesday 7 June. The girls were fantastic, playing against girls a year older than themselves due to it being an U11s competition and filling in for the older girls who were away in Wales. Many thanks to all the parents who came along to support and to AKS for organising a super tournament.

U11 Cricket v St Pius

Wednesday 14 June saw a pleasing win for our KGJS U11 Cricket team when they played St Pius. Everyone was given the opportunity to bat and bowl and we would like to thank St Pius for being excellent hosts.
