On Wednesday 4th March The Priory Academy LSST were invited back after lasts year success to officiate at the Sainsbury’s Primary School games at Grantham Mere’s Leisure centre. Our Sports Leaders spent the day working on poolside running the gala for years 3/4 and 5/6. Their jobs included timekeeping for each lane, turns judges, recording results, starter, announcing and referees. Our leaders showed exemplary skills when managing the younger children and all the races went on without incident.
Although all of us were feeling the heat in the afternoon, the leaders worked really hard right up to the end. A few swapped roles and gave starting races ago giving each other on the spot training.
We witnessed excellent skills and accuracy from all the timekeepers and individuals such as Finn Johnson and Faye Bottomley began to stand out when taking responsibility of the announcing on the day. The sports leaders even got to meet Swimming Olympic Gold medallist Ross Davenport during the event. As always they were a credit to the school!
Sports Leaders involved in the day:
Isaac Kempfe Rice
Ella Thompson Moulding
Mrs Porter and Mrs French
