The Fakenham Academy Sports days were in full action yesterday - with teams from each year group, including our incoming Year 6 students from their primary schools. Students took part in different activities around the school site and in Fakenham Sports and fitness Centre and also at Fakenham Rugby Club.
Activities on offer included Table Tennis, Badminton, Tennis, Softball, Touch Rugby and Kick Cricket. Sports day will culminate on Tuesday with relay races on the school field. Our Year 10 students will be joining us for this final event too.
Students were in the full spirit of the day, with faces painted, pom-poms being waved and lots of cheering and chanting taking place. Well done to all who, very sensibly, came prepared with sun cream, hats and plenty to drink.
Well done to all students who took part in sports day, a big thank you to all staff and volunteers for helping to run the activities. A big thank you goes to the PE department, Mrs Dewson, Mr Savage, Mr Leat, Mrs Savage and Mrs Curtis for their organization and planning of a FANtastic event!
The Scores from both days have been added together and the results were as follows:
4th Place - Saturn House
3rd Place - Mars House
2nd Place - Neptune House
1st Place - Jupiter House
Congratulations to Mr Byrne and Jupiter house on winning the Sports Day cup - sorry that it didn't make it out to the field for you to be presented with it - i'm sure the water jug will be just as good!
