Sports Festival 2016
On Friday 3rd June, Whitburn Academy held its annual Sports Festival. Held in glorious sunshine out on the Sports field and back playground, pupils from S1-S4 took part in a number of events including 100m, 200m, 400m and 800m sprints, the shot putt, javelin, high jump and long jump. The School Band entertained the crowd with a number of tunes including the chart hit 'Seven Years' by Lukas Graham, the art department painted a mural while Social Subjects ran a face painting stall and the 5 Sisters Zoo brought along some animals for the pupils to see including a young goat, a tortoise, an owl, a guinea pig and some rabbits.
The day was a fantastic success! The final results wont be known until Prizegiving as the housepoints gained by the pupils taking part will go towards determining this year's winning house.
