    Published 15/01/24

    Curwen competed at their first competition of 2024 on Friday 12th January as they travelled to UEL

    SportsDock for the Newham Schools Sports Hall Athletics competition.

    Curwen proud in the track events, securing the second fastest times across all the heats for the 1x1,

    2x2 and 4x1 lap relay.

    Curwen continued to shine throughout the field events, with the boys team securing the second

    highest score across all the heats for Chest Push and the girls team matching this feat in the Vertical

    Jump. However, the standout moment of the field events was the performance of the girls team

    within the Speed Bounce, where they recorded the highest amount of jumps across all of the


    This remarkable effort saw Curwen narrowly miss out on a podium place, finishing 4th amongst all

    the schools that entered. The children definitely gave their all in every event and it was very pleasing

    to see them replicate the high level of skill and ability they show within PE in a competitive setting.

    Well done to these children who represented the school amazingly:

    Girls Team - Georgia-Marie (6K), Leah (6K), Danica (6K), Aaminah (6R), Alexia-Ioana (6R), Laila (6C),
