Sports Day 2016
De Lisle's Sports Day was held at Loughborough University's international athletics stadium on 6th July, with students from year 7 to 10 competing for the Sports Day trophy for 2016. On a beautiful day with perfect conditions for track and field, no fewer than six long-standing school records fell (some as far back as 2001!) in the year 8 girls' long jump (4.24m), year 10 girls' shot put (7.25m), year 8 boys' 400m (1.02.56), 100m (year 8: 12.59 seconds; year 9: 11.87 seconds) and the year 8 boys' 4x100m relay (54.81 seconds). The overall winners, by just four points, were Martin Luther King, with Mother Teresa finishing second and Nelson Mandela third.
