The PE department invited sporty competitors from Year 5 to Year 11 to compete. The Superstars challenge-based format complements the HIS and EVOLV3 values, bringing together students from different year groups who work together collaboratively to contribute to their team’s success. There were 27 different events, which were varied and designed to test the students both physically and mentally including a sports quiz, swimming relays, biathlon, sprint races, football skill stations, tug of war, archery, fitness challenges, nerf throw, table tennis, volleyball and an obstacle course.
The competition was fierce throughout the day will some outstanding individual and team performances from each House Team. The lead changed several times throughout the day and the tension was building towards the end of the day, with all eyes on the House trophies. After all the scores were inputted, the teams were invited to the Assembly hall for the presentation.
The winning girls' team was Hatta Hornets for the second year in a row and the winning boys' team was Fahidi Falcons.
Finally, the overall winners of the combined boys’ and girls’ totals eventually came down to point splitting the two teams in 1st and 2nd place. Fahidi Falcons were eventually crowned the EVOLV3 Superstars Champions 2023 with 135 points and Hatta Hornets were a very close 2nd. Dalma Dolphins finished a close 3rd and Liwa Leopards in 4th. Well done to all the competitors for contributing to this spectacular day of sport.
EVOLV3 was kindly supported by 20 sports leaders’ volunteers from Post 16 and the Year 6 primary House Captains who all did a fantastic job, thank you. In addition, thank you to the coaches from EnrichME swimming and football who led some excellent events on the day. Special thanks to Saumyata from Sketchers for the generous sponsorship provided which helped us create that high-quality experience for everyone. Sketchers provided the medals and all competitors received, a Sketchers EVOLV3 Superstars bag and bespoke house t-shirt for the event to keep.
Finally, a huge thanks to our highly skilled PE team for their support in making this such a special day and one to remember. However, the PE team must also thank everyone else from our wonderful HIS staff and community, who helped bring this event to life. It certainly was one of our most exciting and energetic EVOLV3 events to date and we now look forward to the next few weeks of Sports Days culminating with the Y4 to 13 Sports Day at Sports City.
