Congratulations to all the juniors who took part in last Saturdays NW Heat for the Yvette Baker Trophy at Aitken Wood, organised by PFO. The team, consisting mainly of students from Fallibroome Academy, tied for 1st place with WCOC on 890 points and so gained a place in the Final. A fantastic achievement!
The Final will take place on Sunday 7th July at Sandringham. We wish them all the very best of luck.

Fantastic results from Fallibroome students who took part in one of the major events of the year. Twenty-nine students travelled south to brave the cold and sometimes wet weather at Sutton Park in Sutton Coldfield on Sunday 20 November 2016. Once the team had set up their base camp it was a quick reminder about what course they would be running and to make sure they had a whistle and compass. With one member of staff at base and the other at the start we were able to make sure all our students arrived at the start early to prepare for their run.
The Long Distance race at the ISF World Schools Championship event in Turkey took place on Monday 20th April. MDOC's Matt Fellbaum was 21st out of 65 athletes - 1st Brit - in the M1 Selected category.
Congratulations to Matthew Fellbaum who has been selected for the World Schools' Championships 2015 select team. The championships are being held at Antalya, Turkey from Saturday 18th April - Friday 24th April 2015.
