London 2012 Olympics Here We Come!

This week registration for tickets for the London 2012 Olympics opened however Newport pupils actually got a taste of the events at Farnborough VIth Form College. A team of Year 6 pupils were invited to take part in a mini Olympics organised by A level sports studies students.

A range of sporting skills were tested including rowing,cycling
jumping, sprinting to name just a few! Newport were just pipped at the post by Manor Junior in the team sprint relay. Dame Kelly Holmes herself, after whom the Sports hall at Farnborough VIth form is named, would have been impressed with the tremendous team effort and skill demonstrated by all Newport's children. Thank you to all the parents who supported this event.
