This Girl Can is a national campaign developed by Sport England and a wide range of partnership organisations. It’s a celebration of active women up and down the country who are doing their thing no matter how well they do it, how they look or even how red their face gets.
The Year 7 athletics team certainly can! These girls had a warm up competition where some of the girls had the opportunity to showcase their talents; and they didn’t fail to impress coming runners up to Roundhay High School having competed a year above themselves. This put them in good stead for the Year 7 competition.
Unfortunately despite their best efforts, the girls came runners up again to Roundhay High School. What was more pleasing to see was how these girls supported their peers throughout the competition. This is not the end for this group of girls who will continue to train throughout the winter season in preparation for the Leeds Schools Athletics Competition at South Leeds stadium.
