FHS Annual Sports Day 2022

The FHS PE Department waited with great anticipation to run the annual sports day this year. New and exciting activities were planned alongside the athletics events; and all the department were praying for it to be a dry day.

Sports Day falls in the middle of a busy week for the pupils. Year 9 battled through their exams and Year 7 and 8 were enjoying a jam-packed week of TIPS. It was therefore fantastic to see the pupils arriving in high spirits, eager to throw themselves into a morning of physical activity where they demonstrated a tremendous spirit of support and endeavor. This being what makes our community so special. A particular highlight was seeing Lina Colas in Year 11, spending the day supporting the PE Department but also competing in many of the events. Lina is currently revising for her GCSE’s but took the opportunity of an exam free day to produce fantastic performances on the track. She was not alone in her stella performances, and we must applaud the athletic efforts from all the girls in the events that took place. A special mention goes to the athletes below who were awarded the Victrix Ludorum

Year 7- Maya Al-Faisal

Year 8- Holly Fitzpatrick

Year 9- Cordelia Jones

Year 10 - Minty Thiel

Miss James in the PE department organised the ‘open mile’ which took place after the whole school picnic. Anyone and everyone were invited to participate in the event which would be raising money for the ‘Mental Health Foundation’, a charity Miss James will be running for in the London Marathon. To see the whole school, including friends and family moving around the track whether it was skipping, running or walking and doing so in true FHS spirit made this a truly uplifting event. It was a sports day to remember, and we look forward to the event continuing to grow.
