‘Project Oarsome’ End of Year Regatta - 16/07/2018

The regatta was a great showpiece for all of the effort and hard work that the students have put into the project over the last year. Students took part in different heats against peers from seven other Warrington High Schools with the winners going through to the final. The girls’ squad were eliminated by the finest of margins, thanks (or no thanks) to the use of VAR, and the boys’ squad were the winners of the shield for their overall performance on the project.

Mr Taylor said: ‘The regatta was great way to celebrate another fantastic year on the project. It was great to see so many of the students’ family and friends, who came down to the Rowing Club to support the teams. All of the students did themselves and the school very proud.’

Solav and Hovin, students at the Academy, said ‘You learn more from losing than you do from winning. You learn how to keep going despite the disappointment.’

Y9 Rowing Squad –  Alberts Komandieris, Lewis Noonan, Dylan Hubbard, Jack Sanders, Charlie Spiers, Hovin Mahmood, Solav Ali, Maddison Morley, Mollie Forster, Cordelia Elkington.
