Ark William Parker hosted Primary Town Sports Day

It was a bright, sunny day when Ark William Parker hosted the annual Primary Town Sports day where over 15 schools competed in the athletics event.

Schools were divided into 3 categories dependant on the number of pupils in their school. They took part in many different athletics events ranging from sprinting events, 600m, long jump and several throwing events.

Our Year 9 students were on hand to help run some of the events; they did a fantastic job and were a real credit to the Academy. Organisers Rob Smith (Hollington Primary) and Stuart Maclean (Dudley Infant School) said that the Year 9 students were a fantastic group of boys who showed great leadership in running the different activities.
