The annual Sportshall Athletics competition was held on 5th March 2013 in the Laganvalley Leisureplex, Lisburn. 18 schools (10 in our category) took part in events such as long jump, ball throw, javelin, target throw, speed bounce, sprint relay and obstacle course. Each team member participated in 1,2 or 3 events and the scores were added together to give a team total. As the results were read out there was much nervous anticipation (and that was just the staff!) and when Hillcroft were declared champions the pupils cheered loudly.

They all got a gold medal and certificate and we got a shiny trophy to keep. The pupils had a lovely day out, behaved beautifully and performed brilliantly. We are very proud of them all.
