As reported in the September 2014 Forum Focus:
“THE Blandford School held the annual Della Jones Mile and again
it was a great success with a total of 280 participants.
The winning boy was Year 12 student Ryan Walbridge with a time
of 4 minutes 56, who is pictured receiving his award from Mrs
Jones, watched by fellow governor John Paulley. The winning girl
was Amy Robbins from Year 9 finishing in 6 minutes 50.
The top two teachers were Mr Spry running the mile in 5.44, and
Mrs Minchella in 9 minutes 09. Mrs Jones kindly offered to fund
certificates for all the students who completed the mile.”
Ryan, who lives in Tarrant Launceston, also did very well in the Tarrant 10.
