Year 9 District Athletics Competition

On a hot Wednesday 18th June, the PE department took a number of year 9 students’ to compete at the District Athletics at Ashton Playing field. Our students’ competed against 16 other schools from the borough and whilst we would like to congratulate all those who took part, a special mention must go to Chamodh Fernando 9D and Laziba Farooq 9R who both came 4th in their respective discus throws and Sukhraj Singh 9F who finished 4th overall in the 300m race. The Loxford PE department would like to say a big thank you and well done, to all those students’ and staff involved in organising this event.

At Loxford, we strongly believe that Physical Education and Sport provides students with an excellent opportunity to refine skills such as team work, leadership, communication, decision making and developing the mental determination to succeed. These attributes will help your child not only in their academic school life, but in their adult lives also. Sport and Physical Education is an important component of a healthy active lifestyle and developing mental, social and physical well-being. We encourage students and members of the local community, to be actively involved in sport both inside and outside of school to fully develop their performance and understanding.
