Growth with Progress
On 15th June our Quadkids team of Alex, Deacon, Ollie, Brett, Harvey, Tabby, Alice, Iona, Lucy and Melissa headed off to Northgate Sports Centre to take part in the annual Quadkids event. Each school was allocated a country - we were New Zealand - and the event started with a very colourful (and noisy!) parade around the running track. The children were welcomed to the event by the creator of Quadkids, before getting stuck into the four events: Standing Long Jump, 600m, Howler Throw and 75m Sprint.
The children all performed brilliantly in the different events and we came 38 out of 64 teams overall.
As an individual, Alex Palmer-Flory came 22nd in our group (out of 160) and earned a UKA Silver Award.
Most importantly, the children really enjoyed the event as a whole as well as all of the individual elements.
Their behaviour and attitude was first class throughout the whole afternoon - well done team!
