Risedale pupils were out in force at the Catterick Athletics Stadium on Thursday 6th July. As well as the traditional track and field events, pupils could participate in a whole host of other exciting activities including an inflatable assault course, sumo wrestling, jousting, zorb football, cheerleading, gymnastics, a gun run, tyre drag and more! It was a fabulous occasion watched by lots of VIP parents and carers.
Congratulations to ATTENBOROUGH HOUSE on their first-ever Sports Day victory!

“Thank you to EVERYONE from the PE department, we couldn’t do it without everyone pulling together. Every member of staff at Risedale has an input into the planning and running of a long day. Thank you to Catterick Athletics Stadium for hosting us, to all the parents/carers that came along and showed their support and to the Army who always help to make the day such a great event for our pupils.
