I am delighted to say out of 14 schools we finished in 3rd position, earning bronze medals for the whole squad! Here are the standings of all the schools that took place:
2 St Joan of Arc
3 Prior Weston
7 Hargrave Park
8 Poole's Park
11 St Mark's

11 William Tyndale
We also won a number of individual medals, which were awarded for children scoring 1st, 2nd or 3rd overall in boys and girls.
Tyler won gold in shotput. His score of 15.80m also set a new Islington record.
Chantelle won silver in 70m hurdles
Isabella won silver in Quoit throw (discuss). She also broke an existing Islignton record, though this was itself broken later in the day by Canonbury,
Arthur won bronze in triple jump
Aliyah won bronze in shotput. She also broke an existing Islington record which was broken later in the day.
We had numerous other top 6 finishes in both track and field events.
Also a big mention to Tashana and Kia Walcott who competed as the youngest and second youngest children in the competition and did very well
