Hertfordshire Cross Country Championships 

Tomorrow a number of our children will be competing in the Hertfordshire Cross Country Championship at Westminster Lodge. Oliver J and Roisin G will compete in the Year 6 race and Benjamin C and Natalie W will compete in the Year 5 race.  These children have been put forward by the school for their outstanding commitment to Cross Country both in and out of school.  We wish them all the best of luck.

School Games Indoor Athletics

On Monday St Adrian’s took 22 budding athletes to the annual Indoor Athletics Competition.  In the past St Adrian’s have done well in this competition so the pressure was on for the Year 5 and Year 6 children who took part.  This competition consists of 16 schools battling for 6 places to represent St Albans at the district final.  The program of events included Sprints, long distance runs, obstacle races, long jump, triple jump, vertical jump, chest push, javelin and speed bounce.  With our athletics putting their skills into action on the track and field it is an intense afternoon of sport, with the results published 24 hours after the event.  After being questioned continuously since Tuesday morning the results are now in…….. I can confirm that St Adrian’s are through to the District Finals!  HOORAY!
I would like  thank you to all of your children for this year’s qualifiers . It was great to see such good sportsmanship and enjoyment . The children were a credit to our school.  The District Finals will take place on Thursday 27th February at University of Hertfordshire, details will follow shortly.

Did we get through Miss Bowen…………

School PE Kit The school uniform is a simple and practical one which is intended to keep the children looking smart but at the same time enabling them a good degree of movement. This is obviously important during PE. The school PE kit consists of St Adrian’s crested PE T- shirt, blue shorts, black/navy tracksuit bottoms and sweatshirt, and trainers in a drawstring bag. This kit should be in school for the entire week for all PE lessons that may take place. Proper trainers are also required for outside PE and games to ensure the children have the correct foot support when taking part in the physical activity. A reminder that jewellery should be removed for PE and long hair must be tied back. As from Monday 13th January, pupils who do not have the correct PE kit in school for PE lessons will receive a letter home to parents/carers as a gentle reminder. We ask that you support the school in maintaining our uniform standards. Thank you.
