Gold success for Bosco

Students from St John Bosco Arts College, Croxteth are enjoying sporting success after winning gold at the Secondary Schools Girls’ City Athletic Championships.

Pupils from Year 7, 8 and 9 took part in the City Finals and competed against other schools in the Liverpool city region.

As well as a range of track events, girls competed in high jump, long jump, shot putt, javelin and discus competitions.

Year 8 pupil Mia Wilde beat out fierce competition and triumphed in the 100 metre sprint and won gold.
Meanwhile, pupil Zoe Price stood out from the rest in the shot put event and took home another gold medal for the school.

The north Liverpool school already has a strong sports focus, with the LFC Ladies Football Foundation using the school to teach some of its courses, holding tournaments and offering coaching sessions to the PE department.

Headteacher, Anne Pontifex says the recent success is further testament to the high standard of sports the school offers and the incredible talent of its students.
She said: “I am so proud of all our pupils who took part in the Secondary Schools Girls’ City Athletic Championships.
 “A special mention has to go to Mia Wilde, who won gold in the 100m sprint and Zoe Price for taking home gold in the shot put event!

“It just goes to show that hard work, dedication and commitment can result to some amazing achievements. It’s been a brilliant day for St John Bosco!”
