The Primary Sports League Athletics event held at St Christopher’s in Saar welcomed seven other schools this year in the biggest local competition for this activity to date. Spectators and officials alike remarked on the supportive positive atmosphere that permeated the whole afternoon. Every school involved was able to come away with some measure of success and the St. Chris team was no exception, medalling in every event they entered. A special mention must go to Faris Saleh who set new records in both the boys 75m and the shot put, and Sariya AlHamar who established a record in the girls 150m. All the athletes of St. Chris contributed to the overall success of the team and their well-earned gold medals. Massive thanks as always to all the twenty-plus members of staff who volunteered their time to help the event run so smoothly.
