Giant Heptathlon 2017

The North Lanarkshire’s Schools Giant Heptathlon held on the 7th January 2017 was a great success for both our 1st and 2nd year teams.  The competition was held at Ravenscraig Sports Centre and was fiercely fought between ten North Lanarkshire schools.

Events included

  • the 1 minute step up challenge
  • standing long jump
  • triple jump
  • shot put
  • endurance run
  • 60m sprint
  • 60m hurdles
  • team relay to end the day.

Both teams showed great teamwork and should be very proud of themselves.  Special mention to Keir McGarry who jumped the furthest out of all competitors in the standing long jump with a jump of over 6 metres and the S2 boys relay team who came first in their group.

A big thank you to Rachel Donnelly and Lucy McQuaid who helped with the organisation of the day.

Our S2 team came second overall – very well done indeed to everyone!
