The Gryphon saw countries from all over the world repressented at the Olympic Sports day held this term.
Pupils participated in varied sporting activities and traditional Athletics events during the course of a school day.
The first Olympic Sports Day of its kind at the Gryphon saw whole school participation in physical activity all day.
Fierce rivalry was evident between tutor groups within each year group, with much desire to come top of their year group in as many of the activity categories as possible.
With the sun shining and an Olympic Gold Medalist Boccia Player in our midst there was no stopping pupils' excitment and efforts during the day. From impressive indoboard balances, record breaking shot put throws and cruch match volley ball games the Olympics day held all the enjoyment, friendly competition and mass participation aims it set for itself.
The new Sports Day setup brought an increased sense of community feel to both the pupils and staff within school having all worked very closely throughout the day to ensure it run so smoothly. It was truly fantastic to see smiles all round, all day and the huge number of pupils participating within physical activity for the duration of the day. Many pleasing comments from the pupils through out the day and since have been welcomed. Those comments have included; "My best day at the Gryphon so far" and "Couldn't we do it over two days so I could do more activities".
