On 6 October 2016, St Aidan’s Church of England High School hosted its annual sports awards evening.
There were 150 students from year groups 8, 9 and 10 who received an award, presented by wheel chair athletes Callum Hall and Jade Jones. Jade competed in the London 2012 Paralympics and more recently Rio, where she competed in the 800m, 1500m and 5000m. Callum has represented Great Britain and is now involved with the British Athletes Futures Programme for wheelchair racing.
Both guests delighted the audience with a question and answer session and added to the celebratory evening.
St Aidan’s won over 33 sporting competitions and trophies in the 2015-2016 academic year and this evening certainly inspired the students to make it another exciting sporting year!
