The Mac Games
The annual Holy Spirit Mac Games was held on Monday 9th July at Pingles Stadium. All four primary school bought pupils from years 3, 4, 5 and 6 to compete in a full day of events with over 250 pupils in total. Year 3 and 4 took part in athletics with traditional events such as a 400m race, an 80m sprint, long jump and javelin as well as a kwik cricket competition. Meanwhile year 5 and 6 played a round robin of netball and tag rugby.
The day began with a blessing from Fr Matthew, Chaplain at St Thomas More School who blessed the games and all those participating, reminding us to enjoy the day and play with Christian spirit. Talented musicians and sound technicians from Year 7 and Year 8 performed This is me from the Greatest Showman soundtrack as a choir as part of the Opening Ceremony. Pupils gave an excellent performance and account of themselves that morning. Well done to them and Mr Roxburgh for organising
The day was also supported by 21 sport leaders from years 8-10. These pupils worked tirelessly all day keeping score, helping run the events, cheering on all those taking part and were absolutely pivotal to the success of the day. They were credit to themselves, their parents, the school and the MAC. A special mention must go to Harley Hill, Adam Woods, Tristan Brookes and George Locker who ran than tag rugby event and were excellent role models to the young students.
