Sports Day 2017
Thursday 6th July
Senior School Sport

OLA Seniors headed to Tilsley Park on 28th June for the annual OLA Sports Day. There was a celebratory atmosphere - with the stands constantly erupting with noise cheering on team mates.  In total 9 new records were created and many pupils excelled in their disciplines to win medals and points for their Houses. Well done to all competitors – all points earned go towards their House Cup total.

During the day and across the numerous track and field events, there were five changes between the Houses leading the scores. By the end of the afternoon, Challoner emerged victorious with More, Rich and Bowyer following closely behind.

Final scores were:

Challoner             610

More                    607

Rich                     606

Bowyer                588

We have many people to thank for helping to make this such an enjoyable and successful event for our pupils.  A special thank you to the Parents’ Association for their support on the day, and to Owen Harding for taking the photographs.
