Yesterday was the 86th Annual District Sports at the David Weir Centre. Thirteen schools from the borough entered the competition and the year groups competing were Year 3, 4, 5 and 6.
There were heats for the sprint races and relay races , with the top 4 from the heat progressed to the final. Avenue did extremely well and out of 16 races managed to have 15 sprinters and teams in the finals!
All the children in the teams were in the finals and everyone did a fantastic job and put in a huge effort. A special mention must go to Josh in Year 3 who came 1st overall in the sprint, Jodie in Year 4 who came third overall in the sprint, the Year 4 girls’ relay team who came third overall and the Year 6 boys’ relay team who came 1st overall.
Avenue won a shield winning the Year 6 boys relay and the overall trophy for boys. This is the first time since the 1990’s that Avenue have won at this event!
Well done to all the children who took part and thanks to all the family and friends who came along to support the children!

Overall, the two days showed the strength in depth of
football at Avenue and well done to both teams for competing so well!
