We are very excited about our PE teacher, Ms. Dignan, who is qualified for the Sprint Distance Triathlon World Championships, taking place in Canada on August 2020.
Ms. Dignan is a member of Rochdale Triathlon Club since summer of 2018. She have always been a keen runner and swimmer and represented her university in Cross Country and Swimming and always was passionate about running and sport in general. Therefore, triathlon seemed like the perfect fit : why only chose one sport, when you can have 3? She just had to learn how to handle the quick and technical transitions and how to be confident on the bike, being strong enough to hold her own in a race..
Congratulations to Ms. Dignan on this great achievement, we wish her all the best on the competition
AGGS Sports day took place on Thursday 18th July, and was a great success! Activities included Shot putt, Javelin, discus, Long jump, high jump, some other fun activities alongside entertainment by Mrs. Hulme in many costumes! The staff vs. students relay was one of the highlights of the day, where staff relay team came very close, Mr. Flanagan gave Josie H, our fastest student who broke the 100m record today, a real run for her money on first leg – well done to all who took part.
Olivia won the Greater Manchester Schools 800m and was then invited to take part in the Masons Trophy Inter-Counties in Birmingham last weekend, in which she won the bronze medal.
She has today received a letter saying as she now has entry standard times, she has been selected to compete for Greater Manchester in the English Schools Track & Field Championship from 11th -13th July. We look forward to see her compete then.
