Newquay Tethers held its first sports day in 4 years!
Until this year Sports day at the Academy had been continually postponed due to the notoriously poor British summer weather.
The dedicated Tretherras PE department hand exhausted alternative dates and contingency plans for running the event that would see the whole participate in a range of athletics events on the Tretherras Sports fields.
Year 11 students were the last year group to experience a whole school sports day and in their absence the current Year 7, 8, 9 and 10 Tretherras students took on the challenge of sports day, enjoying the opportunity to compete together.
Excited students behaved themselves impeccably as over 1000 participants camped on the Tretherras Sports fields all day to make a very successful sports day happen.
Traditional track and field events gave tutor groups the opportunity to compete against each other as well as let individual talents and abilities shine. All time favorite fun events, the egg and spoon race and tug of war, completed the sports day extravaganza line up.
Mr. Keith Barker and Mr. Paul Summers ran commentary throughout the day keeping students up to date with results whilst Mrs. Sue Martin Headteacher along with Deputy headteachers Mrs. Sam Fairburn and Miss Sarah Goswell presented certificates and medals. Parents watched events from the trackside whilst passers by stopped in front of the school to witness the event.
A jubilant Mr. Craig Richards, Head of PE at Newquay Tretherras commented, “At Tretherras we are incredibly lucky to have such an extensive sporting curriculum that all students participate in and benefit from. We are extremely proud of that and being able to run our sports day really does demonstrates the successful healthy and active life styles of our students.”
Mr. Richards continued, ‘The Tretherras students were fantastic and I really appreciate the positive way in which students and staff enthusiastically approached it. We have waited a bit but I am delighted that Sports Day at Tretherras was an incredibly successful day, delivering mass sporting participation for the whole school to enjoy.’
