Kent Games

Kent Games 2Due to excellent performances in the Maidstone Schools event, 8 Valley Park School Year 7 boys were chosen alongside 8 Invicta Grammar School girls to represent Maidstone and Mid Kent on Friday 21 June in the annual Kent Games. 

This exciting event was held at Medway Park in Gillingham in which a school represented every district. 

Each team member took part in a track event, a field event and a relay. Even the teachers got involved in a staff race at the end! 

The overall winners on the day were Dartford district but Maidstone and Mid Kent managed to finish in the top ten out of the fourteen districts that were represented. 

Some outstanding performances on the day were matched by their excellent behaviour and the students that attended all mentioned how much fun some of the new events were; they were able to participate in hurdles, high jump and medley relays. 

Good luck to all the Athletes in our upcoming events. The year 9 and 10 Boys and Girls event is this week and with only two weeks to go until our Sports Days everyone will need to keep working hard to bring home their medals.
