With the sun shining, St Gerard’s enjoyed an exciting Sports Day which included an obstacle relay, rob the nest game, tennis ball relay and an egg and spoon race. The children were split into their house groups to compete against each other and demonstrated great sportsmanship.
At the end of the games, St Bernadette’s house were the overall winners with a total of 304 points. The house captains were awarded a winning trophy from Miss Crowley and ran a lap of honour around the playground.
“Playing sport has become very important today, since it can encourage young people to develop important values such as loyalty, perseverance, friendship, sharing and solidarity.” – Pope John Paul I
