Whitley Academy Sports Day 2016

Whitley Academy Sports Day was once again a success this year despite the indifferent weather. All students from Year 7, 8 and 9 watched and took part in lots of different events that were taking place. The format included a rounders tournament and tug of war competition along with the traditional track and field events. The students were outstanding during the competition and gave their all to win and take part in the events. There was some excellent cheering and dancing on the bank and a good time was had by all. Well done to all those students who took part and a big thank you to all the Year 10 Student Leaders.
