Alex W: It was pretty OK but we didn't get gold, maybe next time.
Harry P: I didn't think I’d do so well in the standing long jump but surprised myself when I jumped 2 metres.
TJ: I really enjoyed my first time at the games, especially the javelin.
Tanvir: I came first in the high step challenge against some hard competition.
Parvir: I enjoyed the summer games. My favourite was the chest push with a ball.
K’Leeer: I was awarded a gold medal for rowing. It was brilliant.
Louis: I came second out of 73 other students in the 800m race. I was exhausted.
George: I got two medals, a silver and gold in the rowing competitions.
Eliada: When I was at the indoor rowing for the first time, I had a lot of fun. I found the rowing hard work, when I was doing the individual events I got second place.
James: I found indoor rowing very exciting because I did the four minute row and got two gold medals.
Joe: I enjoyed the day yesterday because we worked together as a team and we all worked really hard. We got a gold medal.
Jamie M: It was very hard work rowing. I came third in my first race, I did pretty well. My team were good, we won silver in the relay. My mum came to watch and that kept me going.
