Greenfield Community College now serves two communities, the Aycliffe site take students from Newton Aycliffe and the surrounding area, and their Sunnydale site offers services to Shildon families and the surrounding area. Both sites are going from strength to strength.
One of the bonuses for the Aycliffe site, is access to the fantastic athletics facilities attached to the Sunnydale site. This year has seen their athletes excel. Greenfield U14 girls finished 2nd to Barnard Castle last week, when the ten South West Durham Schools came together for a Yr 9 interschool event last week.
1st Barnard Castle 72pts
2nd Greenfield Community College 68pt
3rd Wolsingham 61pts
Greenfield boys Finished in 4th place, with St Johns 1st, Barnard Castle 2nd, Woodham 3rd with 46pt & Greenfield 4th with 44pts.
This season has seen six of the school's athletics records broken to date.
Christina Shodunke broke the Yr 9 girls Long Jump record set over 20 yrs ago in 1991 by Joy Halford (4.47m) when she jumped 4.54m to gain a place in the County finals.
Courtney Mills broke the Yr 11 girls 200m record set over 30 yrs ago by Paula Wigham (28sec), with a fantastic time of 26.99secs, to also gain a place in the County finals.
Adam Lamb broke the 100m record set by Georgie El Hakim (12.1) in 1990, with his time of 11.81 sec. Adam is through to the County finals in the Triple Jump, where he is chasing the school record set by Ross Dodds in 2001 of 10.95m.
Other school records broken this year include the Yr 7 800m record set in 2003 by Simon Hewitson of 2min 32.5sec, by Aiden Ord who gained a time of 2min 21.9 sec in a recent club event. Plus the Year 9 4x100 girls & boys relay records.
An amazing start to the 2015 season. Good luck to above and Jasmine Falconer (High Jump) in the County Finals at Monkton on Saturday 13th June, and well done to Joy, Paula, Georgie and Simon for holding their records for as long as they did.
