For most young people, July brings into view the finishing line of the school year as their thoughts turn largely to holidays and relaxation. But for some young people, the qualifying 200 or so who have already proven themselves against a field of over 1400 of their peers, July marks the climax of the athletic year and their thoughts are far from relaxation. The Typhoo National Junior Athletics Championships are the culmination of the EFDS’ (English Federation of Disability Sport) events program. Held at Warwick Athletics Stadium on the 2nd and 3rd of July, the event is a showcase of 12 to 20 year old sporting talent, and is a chance to spot the paralympians of tomorrow.
TMBS is beside itself with pride at the endeavours of our own Harry Tyrell of year 7. This was Harry’s first ever national championships and he left the event heavier by two silver medals, thanks to his splendid performance in the long jump. We couldn’t be more delighted with both his outstanding achievements and the exemplary way he conducted himself at the event, we’re lucky to have such a fine young man and sportsman as an ambassador for the school.
With past champions of the event, such as Aled Davies and Hollie Arnold going on to become world-class athletes, plans are already quietly underway to re-enforce the silverware cabinet in the TMBS reception area. Well done Harry, keep up the fantastic effort and hard work, we are all confident that many more sporting accolades are to follow.
Onatti Theatre Shipwrecked in France
Earlier this month TMBS played host to the Onatti theatre. Year 6s from our official feeder schools came to take part in a play designed for a KS2 audience, as an introduction to French . The majority of schools sent students and participation from the students was great. The play was called 'Shipwrecked in France', about a boy who gets lost in a dinghy, lands and doesn't know where he is and gets a French girl to help him back to his hotel. It's all about communicating in a fun and accessible way.
Year 11 Prom
It was smashing to see all our lovely year 11s letting their hair down and having a well deserved night of fun and festivities at their prom.
