Islington Athletic Champions
In July, a 40 strong team of pupils from Years 7, 8, 9 and 10 competed against other schools in Islington for the annual summer Islington Athletics Championship.
In winning the day-long tournament, the team, trained by Mr Wilson and Mr O’Neil, retained the trophy for the third year in succession.
Boys from all four years competed against St Aloysius, St Mary Magdalene Academy, Islington Arts and Media School (IAMs), City of London Academy (COLA) and Holloway.
Once again, Central Foundation recorded a comfortable victory that would have required second place IAMs to come first in five more events to win.
The most successful event for the school was the triple jump, where a gold medal was won across all four years. With a high level of competition at Sports Day and continuing success across Islington, Central Foundation’s dedication to sports from the curriculum, to after-school clubs to guest workshops in a variety of sports is paying dividends.
Parents and pupils should keep an eye out for the extra-curricular timetable in September to see which new and returning sports clubs will be available in the next academic year.
