Holy Redeemer were outstanding at the Catholic Athletics Tournament. The children cheered one another on with great enthusiasm and returned to school with a large haul of medals.
We came first in three events; Josh in the under 11 600 metres, Lucia in the 9 and under 100 metre sprint and Dara in the under 11 throw. We took silver in 3 events; under 11 boys relay team (Troy, Harry, Alex and Josh) and Will and Martha in the under 11 long jumps. We won bronze in under 9 boys relay team (Xen, Jack, Josh and Reuben) the under 9 girls relay team (Clara, Morgan, Lucia and Breda) Alex in the under 11 boys sprint, Lily in the under 9 throw and Xen in the under 9 long jump.
This is our highest medal tally to date and the under 11 boys’ team also finished in 2nd place overall, just one point behind St Bedes.
Well done to all of the children; they were amazing! It was great to gain high place finishes in both the track and field events.
A special mention to Jack and Morgan for stepping in at the last minute to complete relay teams.
Thanks to St Joseph’s for organising the event and to all the parents supporting on the evening. Please continue to attend running and fitness club it makes a big difference to our performance.
