Sports Day At The Academy

Banbridge Academy’s sports day returned this year on Tuesday 7th June after a long absence, and what a day it turned out to be! The weather was absolutely glorious and the sun shone on a full day of athletic competition between the four houses of Crozier, Dunbar, McWilliam and Waddell.

Over 200 pupils took part and those not involved cheered on from the side lines as all of years 8-11 enjoyed the spectacle. All the traditional athletics track & field events were included as well as a golf chipping event and the ever popular Tug O’ War competition to finish the day; the Ice cream van and the crepe truck were a big hit too!

At the end of the day, when all the scores were added, the winning house, by the narrowest of margins were McWilliam; and worthy winners they were too.

All in all it was a fantastic day and everyone was delighted to get one of the schools big events back on track after a long time away. Well done to all involved in making such a fantastic day happen. Roll on next year!
