Welshpool High School is on the hunt for its all-time sports day record holders in the run up to its Sports Awards Evening.

The event takes place every two years years to celebrate the sporting success of students at the school. There will be numerous awards on the evening, which will take place at the end of the month, to recognise progress, achievement, and sporting excellence.

And this year, the school has decided to invite all of its sports day record holders to join too, dating back to the 1960s, so they can celebrate their achievements alongside current students.

PE teacher Wendy Langford said: “We have managed to contact a large number of the record holders but have had difficulty contacting a small number of them.”

The record-setters the school hasn’t yet managed to contact are:

Year 7 Girls Long Jump from 1967

Year 7 Boys Shot Putt from 1995

Year 9 High Jump from 2006

Year 8 Rounders Ball Throw from 1986

If you think you might know or might be one of these record holders please contact the school.

All the records will now stand and new records will be set from 2020 onwards for the new sporting facilities.

Ms Langford said: “The pupils pictured are all sports ambassadors at the school and form part of the schools sports council, they play an integral part in arranging sporting events and expressing the opinions of other pupils from across the school in order to move the school forward.”

Construction business Pave Aways is the main sponsor of the Welshpool High School Sports Awards Evening, taking place on Thursday, October 24.
