Panathlon Challenge East Champions Final

27th April 2015

On Tuesday 17 March a team of pupils from Stormont House represented Hackney at the East London Champions’ Final of the Pentathlon Challenge, competing against strong teams from Barking & Dagenham, Redbridge and Islington. Pupils from Years 8  Owais, Marco and Victoria plus Kaymound Yr 7 had qualified for this Champions Final in an earlier round.  After a full day of different sporting activities, including Athletics, Boccia, Polybat, New Age Kurling and Table Cricket, Hackney came 3rd overall. Although this means that we came 3rd out of all 8 East London Boroughs, we missed out on a place in the London Final by just a few points, mainly because we didn’t have as many competitors in some of the categories. Congratulations to the winners Barking & Dagenham, and well done to every member of our team for beating their previous personal bests and representing the school and the borough so well!
