Sporting Success at SCD
We had a fantastic all school sports day earlier this month, with the weather on our side and the students enthusiastic and raring to go for the first time in two years. It was wonderful to see everyone eager to participate and support their fellow team mates and friends.
The overall winner of the day was Lincoln – but this was no easy feat with heavy competition from the other houses.
Some key highlights from the day were the Year 10 Pentathlon winners, there was a fantastic performance by George Hawkins in the 800m to take 1st place with Louise Catignani who made a last push to take the win for the girls.
Well done and a big thank you to the PE faculty and all the teachers involved in ensuring it was an action packed and fun filled day for all.
