Added 4 years ago
Tuesday 12th May and Wednesday 13th May - English Schools Track and Field Cup
On Tuesday and Wednesday this week our athletics teams visited the Carn Brea athletics track to take part in this competition. This is a national competition which is run all across England. In this Cornwall stage, our students once again excelled. In each of the boys and girls competitions there were around 20 teams entered from the whole county. This is a real team competition with each student taking part in 2 events and scoring points for their school. These were the Richard Lander School results;
Junior boys (Year 7/8) - 1st -
Inter boys (Year 9/10) - 1st
Junior girls (Year 7/8) - 2nd
Inter girls (Year 9/10) - 1st
This is an amazing achievement and a testimony to the quality of athletics at our school. Well done to all the students who competed, they once again did our school proud.
3 of our teams now look forward to attending the regional event in Exeter in June.
