Harlow primary pupils make light of heavy rain at Quad Kids

AN unbelievably HUGE and SOAKING WET thank you to all the 200+ pupils and school staff who attend the Quad Kids events at Mark Hall Sports Centre recently.

The rain did it’s best to prevent the event from taking place, but once again the primary school staff and pupils refused to be beaten by the weather.

Both events (a morning for the Years 3 and 4 and the afternoon for the Years 5 and 6) were well attended, considering for many schools it was a half-day/early finish. The athletes produced some amazing performances given the torrential rain as they took part in a sprint (50m or 75m), standing long jump, a howler throw and a long distance run (400m or 600m).

SGO David Stacey was delighted with the fantastic support of all the school staff, who enabled the children to compete in the four disciplines and (almost) receive their scores/placings. But for some very wet scores sheet, the children would have recognised some amazing individual and team performances, though medals will be distributed to the top three schools and athletes on their return after the Easter Break.

Thanks to all the school staff who were absolutely soaked to the skin in their efforts to support the primary schools’ event; it was brilliant to see so many children taking part, achieving personal bests, being active and making friends.
