A number of RGS students competed in the District Athletics Championships at Medway Park on Thursday 14th July. It was a long day leaving RGS at 8.45am and returning back at 5.30pm. During the day some girls competed in three events with some having to compete in heats as well as finals. Throughout the day there was a sense of unity with students supporting each other and cheering each other on for all events.
Many students were given medals for first, second and third place in their events which left us eagerly awaiting the results. After waiting what seemed like a lifetime the results were announced and the RGS girls had come first. Tofunmi D’Costa and Lucy Maycock collected theshieldbringingitbacktothegirlsforateamphoto.

A huge congratulations is due to each and every one of them and a special mention goes to the year nine relay team who ran the 4x100m relay in 53 seconds!
