South Yorkshire School Games 2016/17

Our PE students once again were a credit to the Academy. This year they really stepped up their performance and looked strong when competing against schools from Doncaster, Rotherham and Sheffield.

In the athletics we had some stand out performances;

Chloe B (year 7) winning the 2 lap sprint

Curtis H (year 7) runner up in the four lap sprint

Tyler T (year 8) runner up in the six lap sprint

Our year 8 boys athletics team finished in 3rd place which is a fantastic achievement.

The highlight of the day however, goes to the year 8 and 9 handball team. After only playing the sport once, the boys went on to win the competition and are now the South Yorkshire Schools handball champions. The boys performance was fantastic, drawing plaudits from other teachers and ex handball players.

The players involved were:

Joe N

Freddie P

Ethan K

Louis B

Thomas S

Harrison Mc

Harry A (yr 8)

Harry W (yr8)

Josh R (yr8)

Kirk Balk Academy would like to congratulate all students on their success and how admirably they have represented the PE dept, Academy and Barnsley.
