Y3/4 Sportshall athletics
Tuesday 7th February 2017 @ Darwen Vale
This was our first ever Year 3 and 4 indoor athletics event and 18 of our children arrived at Darwen Vale extremely excited! After a quick team talk from Mr. Turner, the competition began. We competed in 11 events throughout, on the track and on the field.
We started the event in unlucky fashion, with two of our athletes unfortunately falling over as they were racing! Our children gave 100% in each of their events and they represented school brilliantly.
We finished the event in 5th place, a great achievement in our first ever Year 3 and 4 athletics event! Congratulations to Lower Darwen who won the event and to all the other participating schools.
Well done to all who represented St Paul’s, we are proud of you all!

Tuesday 10th January 2017 @ St. Bedes
Another excellent evening of competitive sport at St. Bedes. Our Year 5/6 mixed athletics team went to the event hoping to beat last year's event score.
We performed brilliantly throughout the evening, winning a number of our track and field events. The particular highlights were winning the girls 6 lap relay and the 4x1 relay.
St. Paul's finished 2nd on the night, with St. Francis the overall winners. Well done to St. Francis!
1st - St. Francis
2nd - St. Paul's
3rd - Feniscowles
4th - St. Edwards
5th - St. Peters Mill Hill
Once again, the children performed brilliantly and behaved impeccably as always. They are a credit to our school!
The event was extremely well organised and run by the youth leaders at St. Bedes alongside the SGO and ASGO for Blackburn. We look forward to the next event!
