2018 Sports Day

WELCOME TO LEICESTER GRAMMAR SCHOOL SPORTS DAY

A warm welcome to all pupils, parents and staff for our annual Sports Day.  Let us hope the weather is kind to us and we have an enjoyable and competitive day of athletics.  Our thanks to Saffron Lane Sports Centre for helping us stage this annual event.

We hope that all competitors will use the Olympic values to both inspire and motivate them to produce their best possible individual performances in the spirit of friendly competition.

FRIENDSHIP |  RESPECT  |  EXCELLENCE  |  DETERMINATION |  COURAGE  |  EQUALITY  |  INSPIRATION

Sports Day records may only be set today but School records can be set at any athletics competition where qualified UKA officials are in attendance.  I would encourage any of our current or past pupils to submit times/distances by email to Mr Allen at school with the date and occasion of the qualifying event.  A current list of school athletic records will be displayed on the back of the announcers hut today.

My sincere thanks go to all staff and volunteers who help make this event so successful.  I would encourage everyone to enjoy the excellent refreshments which are again on sale in the clubhouse. 

Thank you for your support.  We look forward to a super day.

Director of Sport
