Hunts SSP Quad Kids Athletics Results
‘I’ve never run 600m before and I didn’t care that I came last, I am just pleased that I finished!’ Pupil Quote
We were thrilled to read the above quote from the Quad Kids Athletics, there were many other complimentary quotes but we were pleased to see how this pupil was pleased with their personal best, well done, what a great approach!
Congratulations to all of the schools and the 350 pupils who competed in the Hunts SSP Quad Kids athletics on Tuesday, 13 June. We had fantastic weather and all 41 teams enjoyed a great day of athletics in A, B and C teams.
QuadKids Athletics is a team based competition with mixed teams taking part in 4 disciplines: a long distance (600m) run, a 75m sprint, a vortex throw and a standing long jump. All competitors’ scores are amalgamated resulting in a team score. Scores for the top two large schools (schools with more than 120 students in KS2) and the top scores for the small schools (schools with less than 120 students in KS2) determine who will represent Hunts SSP at the County Level 3 event on the 29 June.
The event was supported by Leadership students from St Ivo School, Abbey College, Longsands School, Hinchingbrooke School and St Peter’s secondary school.
During the event School Games values were awarded to pupils but a special commendation goes to Milo from Abbots Ripton for stopping mid race to support a fellow runner who had tripped up. Fantastic to see great sportsmanship.

|Respect||Danny who showed respect and encouragement to a fellow competition during the long jump.|

Partnership Manager Sue Ager said it was fantastic to see over 350 primary aged pupils taking part and trying their best. This pupil’s quote summed up the day,
‘I’ve never run 600m before and I didn’t care that I came last, I am just pleased that I finished!’
We want to see all pupils trying to achieve their personal best and be proud of their result.
All of the participants taking part were an inspiration. The young leaders were amazing in supporting the younger pupils, encouraging and guiding them through their activities. We are very grateful to the secondary schools for their support and the young leaders for all of their hard work.
