Sports Day 2017

Red House Academy Sports Day - Gateshead Stadium on Monday 3rd July 2017.

As the summer term got underway at Red House Academy, all the talk turned to our annual sports day, with our finest athletes, staff and students alike all wanting to showcase their talents in front of the watching school at Gateshead Stadium. Who was going to win the coveted 400 x 100m race was the talk of the school......and that was just for the staff!

But of course the main focus of the day was the student races, with whole KS3 and KS4 finely tuned from a full term of athletics activities.

This year's sports day once again ran like clockwork thanks to the background organisation from Miss Reynolds in partnership with Gateshead Stadium. Unfortunately we couldn't provide the glorious weather from previous years, and dark clouds and some rain had set in. Some events had to be cancelled but that didn't dampen the spirits of the students who pumped up as usual and eager to impress.

Our pupils excelled throughout the day, showcasing the outstanding talent Red House has. All involved should be very proud of what they achieved, from taking part to the medal winning performances.

A huge thanks goes out to Miss Reynolds and the Gateshead College staff and pupils who supported the whole event and our links with Gateshead Stadium once again gratefully further strengthened.
