No rainy day blues

Spirits were high at Cambridge Middle School’s annual athletics day at the Cambridge Athletic and Harrier Club in Vogel St last week despite the drizzly rain.

Conditions were too slippery to run the high jump, so teachers kept students entertained by letting them jump onto the landing pad and slide across the surface instead.

However, the 100m and 200m sprint races, relays, long jump, shot put and discus all went ahead.

Students could choose to take part in competitive or non-competitive events. Steph Bell-Jenkins took her camera along.

Charlotte Rennie flies high in the long jump.
