Panathlon Competition

On 15th January 2018 six Ruislip High students took part in the first heat of this year’s Panathlon competition which was held at Featherstone High School. The students competed alongside other Hillingdon schools against Hounslow and Ealing. James, Year 11, Samantha, Year 11, Kavindu, Year 9, Satya, Year 9, Reece, Year 9 and Lily-Mai, Year 7, all took part in individual sports as well as relays. 

The results:

James and Kavindu won Gold medals for the power chair slalom;

Lily-Mai and Kavindu won Bronze for the beanbag throwing event;

Samantha, Satya and Lily-Mai won Gold in table cricket;

Reece won two Gold medals for polybat and javelin;

Samantha received a Gold medal for javelin. 

The highlight of the day was the exciting relay races where students of all abilities took part. The atmosphere was incredible and the points from the relay races placed the Hillingdon team joint first place with Hounslow. The result was decided by one final race.

Overall, Ruislip High students helped the Hillingdon team win the first heat and they will now represent West London in the next round at St Mary’s University on 27th March 2018. The Ruislip High students thoroughly enjoy taking part in this competition and are looking forward to competing in the next round.
