Last month ISA ran a competition for pupils to design a logo for The Festival of Sport, our own mini Olympics which takes place this summer.
The winning design was created by Isabella Andrews, Year 9 from St Dominic’s Priory School in Stone, Staffordshire.
Her logo, which was chosen unanimously by the judges, will be used throughout the event in June, and will feature on t-shirts given to all those taking part.
Nearly 1000 pupils have signed up to take part in the three day festival, which is rapidly shaping up to be the biggest sporting event in the independent school calendar. Places filled up quickly and the Festival is now fully booked!
Held at the University of Nottingham, this mini Olympics will encompass a whole range of sporting activities from athletics and football, to badminton, hockey and swimming.
There will be an opening and closing ceremony, and individual schools will compete against each other for a range of medals and trophies.
Gwilym Price, ISA Director of Sport and Festival organiser said:
“The Festival of Sport is a major, flagship event for the ISA, and we are all really excited about the opportunity to showcase the excellent sporting ability we have in our schools. But this isn’t just about competition, it’s about giving pupils the chance to take part in a whole range of sports, whilst making friends with children from up and down the country. We hope to give them the memory of being involved in their own mini Olympic Games, in the year the games came to Britain.”
Isabella’s prize is a £50 Sports Direct voucher. Thank you to all the teachers and pupils who took part, and congratulations to Isabella!
