Thornton’s Intermediate and Senior girls enjoyed field and track activities in the sunshine during their annual sports day this week. It kicked off with a fun run for all the year groups, with Ingleton house captain Annalissa B bringing the baton home in first place. The girls then competed in 100 metre to 800 metre races, hurdles, relays, javelin, shot putt, long jump and high jump.
Miss Williams said to the girls: ‘You’ve really thrown yourself into the competition and supported each other’ before presenting both the Intermediate and Senior Cups to Tyrell, the winning house.
The Intermediate Victrix Ludorum cup for all-round achievement went to Julianne N from Year 7, while Year 9 student Amber E received the Senior Victrix Ludorum for the second year running.
