    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.

    2x2 and 4x1 lap relay.

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

    Boys Team – Nico (6R), Matej (6R), Gheorghe (6R), Emmanuel (6C), Nathan (6C).
