Sports Day

Sports Days at Handsworth Wood Girls’ Academy

After a long awaited comeback, this year Handsworth Wood Girls’ Academy organised Sports Days for Years 7 - 10, running from 17th – 20th June, respectively. Pupils were competing in a number of activities ranging from traditional events; 60m sprint, 200m sprint, 400m, 4x50m relay, 4x200m relay, shot putt and long jump, to classic events; Tug of War, Egg and Spoon and the 3 Legged Race! The pupils thoroughly enjoyed themselves and every child participated which was an amazing sight. The front field was a colourful affair where pupils were in their coloured House bibs along with posters, banners and pom poms to match! Parents were invited along to the event and took part in the Parents’ Race. They also attended the medal presentation ceremony afterwards, where pupils were rewarded with a medal on the podium by a member of the Senior Leadership Team.


   The Academy hopes to continue to run Sports Days every year as this year proved to be a huge success. The winners from each year group were as follows;
