08 Feb Panathlon
On Thursday 1st February, six students from Jo Richardson took part in Round 1 of the London Panathlon Competition for 2018 at Frenford Clubs in Ilford. They competed as part of the Barking and Dagenham Team against three other London boroughs, Waltham Forest, Redbridge and Havering. The team worked very hard in all of their events and achieved an amazing haul of ALL gold medals which was an incredible achievement. Victor Oso 8H and Reece Ward 9F achieved Gold in power wheelchair slalom and wheelchair races, Tristan Filbert got Gold in the polybat event, Harvey Amparbeng 7F got Gold in table cricket and Eniola Koleowo 8C and Leticha Correia Cabral 8C were both victorious in their running races.
Congratulations to all who took part on their splendid performances and good sporting behaviour. Thanks also to Mr Kilminster for driving us to the event and supporting the team on the day. We now look forward to the Round 2 event, which takes place on Tuesday 6th March at the UEL Sports Dock, if we get through this event we could be on our way to the London Champions Finals in the Summer term at the Copper Box in the Olympic Park – wish us luck!
