On Wednesday 26th June the Wollaston School students were invited to participate in their first EMAT Olympics event. The East Midlands Academy Trust joined together on this occasion with the Nene Valley Trust of schools including the primary and secondary schools. The primary schools taking part were Irchester, Coggenhoe, Bozeat.


The Wollaston Year 7, Year 8 and Year 9 athletes were invited to run and compete in a variety of track and field events. Wollaston athletes were up against Prince William School and Northampton International Academy. There were some excellent races with the highlights coming from the boys 300m’s and the boys and girls relay races. It was a real highlight to the day that Tessa Sanders an Olympic Gold medallist was there supporting all the athletes and spent time with the Wollaston students. It was wonderful to see and be near to a highly decorated Olympian and athlete.

The event was live streamed through Youtube and through a large video screen on the inside of the track. This enabled all participants to see themselves and their friends and added a very exciting element to the day.

As part of the preparations for the event, 4 year 10 Wollaston students had been trained in the use of media and working with cameras and interviewing people for the day.  They were roving reporters and sports reporters who provided media coverage and interviews throughout the day. Some of their performances were very polished and with slick presentations that stood out on the big screen.

We very much look forwards to this event next year and the celebration of athletics and sporting competition in a very exciting venue and platform.
