Olympiad proves a record breaker

July 31 2018

A RECORD 868 children from 14 Mangotsfield and Downend primary schools took part in the 2018 MaD Olympiad.

The event, run by the CSET Sports Partnership at Mangotsfield School, involved multi skills and athletics for Year 2 in the morning and a hugely competitive KS2 athletics event in the afternoon. 

Organiser Wendy O'Donnell said the event's success was largely down to the 41 Year 7/ 8 students who supported the day as Sports Leaders.

Esmee Chard, one of the Year 8 Leaders, said "I really enjoyed The Olympiad because I got the chance to encourage the children throughout the event. They were determined and excited to improve"

The CSET Sports Partnership will be recruiting more sports leaders in September and would welcome applications from anyone keen to get involved.
