Many students had a chance to represent their forms in this year’s Sports Day finals in a competitive, yet fun and exciting day. Students had taken part in heats in PE lessons leading up to the finals and if successful, qualified to represent their form group. This year we added new events: the 300m and 1500m and the triple jump, giving the opportunity for new records to be set. Many long standing records were broken - Molly Adams 8NMG broke the long jump record which was set in 1979 by jumping a distance of 4.51m and Lee Westley broke two school records on the day in the 100m and 200m. Lee broke a record in the 200m which had been held since 1982 with a time of 24.7 seconds. However, the most spectacular achievement of the day was his 100m record. Lee ran a time of 10.97 seconds which is a superb achievement.
Each year we award special awards for students who recorded the most outstanding performances across two year groups. Congratulations to these well deserved winners:
Junior Victrix Ludorum (YR7 & 8 Girl) - Molly AdamsJunior Victor Ludorum (YR7 & 8 Boy) - Vaughn WatsonSenior Victrix Ludorum (YR9 & 10 Girl) - Leah WhiteSenior Victor Ludorum (YR9 & 10 Boy) - Lee Westley
It is a fantastic achievement that at some point either in the qualifying heats or the finals day that nearly all students in Years 7-9 have taken part in at least one track or field event. The finals day was superb and the crowd generated an atmosphere that was both energetic and supportive of our athletes. I would like to take this opportunity to thank all staff and sixth formers that made the day possible by helping to officiate the events. A more detailed report of the day's events will appear in the July edition of Ousenews due out on 19th July.
Mr LowdellHead of Physical Education
The school will be entering a staff team for the Newport Muster on Saturday 14th September; the team will be completing the 6 mile walk.
If families, parents and students would like to meet up with the team on the day, which will be led by Miss Wiles, they should register themselves for the walk on the Muster website at http://www.newportmuster.org.uk/. There are also details on the website about how to raise sponsorship money for Willen Hospice.

As part of our catering services review, we will be increasing the cost of some menu items in the school dining rooms with effect from September 2013. The Free School Meal value will be increased to £2.
This increase has been designed to cover the cost of food price inflation. Our updated menu will be published shortly.
