End of School Outing
The highlight of Melrose’s sporting calendar is without doubt the annual school Sports Day. In the last week of term all staff and students make their way to Tooting Bec Athletics track for a day of athletic competition. Students are separated into two teams and start the day by participating in field events (shot put, long jump and high jump) and then come together afterwards for the track events, culminating in the 100m sprint. It is always a fantastic day of sportsmanship where students try their best to win not only individual medals, but also points for their team too. In the past students such as Alex Helps, Michael Richards and Andy Casey have excelled on this day of days.
