On Wednesday 20th June 12 St Joseph’s School pupils travelled to Birmingham to participate in the highly prestigious ISA National Athletics competition, having recently qualified via their successful performances at the ISA South West event.
It was wonderful to see the strength of St Joseph’s representation, and huge congratulations to Ella Shaw, Louisa Smith, Jack Woods, Thomas Harris, Daniella Stevens, Alice Amankwah, Florence Scard-Morgan, Pippi Harris, Kellen Lincoln, Harrison Shaw, Jude Bunyard and Josh Thomas who all represented the school so well both with their fantastic performances and attitudes.
A special mention must go to Year 5 pupil Jude Bunyard who ran in the 4x100m relay where he was selected to represent the South West team with 3 other members from our area. They finished second, winning a silver medal. Well done Jude, you did brilliantly!
Finally congratulations to Year 10 pupil Ella Henry-Brock who became National Champion, winning the Shot putt at the competition. She achieved further glory when winning a silver medal in the high jump. Amazing work Ella!
