As an alternative to Sports Day this year, the PE department has created a menu of challenge activities for you to try.

Here is our ‘Love of Sport’ presentation. The programme is due to take place next week 6th – 10th July and we are inviting you to send in photographs and video clips of you taking part. Results are not important as it is all about having a go and enjoying the challenges at home!

Soccer Aid for Unicef Playground Challenge

Soccer Aid for Unicef Playground Challenge was delivered during Yr7 PE lessons on Wednesday 10th July.  This was a fundraising event and the money the school raised will help children in danger all over the world, helping them to grow up healthy and happy.

Four obstacle courses were set up and each child was timed to complete the course, moving with a ball at their feet or in their hands.  The students achieving the fastest times coming either first (gold), second (silver) or third (bronze) will all receive a gift voucher.

 

Year 9 Boys Narrowly Miss Out in Cup Final

The Year 9 Boys football team came close to a trophy as they were edged out 1-0 in the league cup on Thursday 6th June to George Stephenson High, despite conceding a very soft penalty early in the first half.
They worked tirelessly and were the better team in the second half and on another day the result could have gone the other way. All of them conducted themselves with distinction and they should be very proud of how they performed and represented the school. They went as a team and finished the game as one team.
Roll on next year, this team gets better and better!

Dance Festival

Our dancers performed at the area dance festival at The Parks last Tuesday evening.  The theme was Stage and Screen.  We had two groups performing on the night.  Our Y7 group were performing for the first time and our senior girls performed a separate dance at the event.  It was a superb occasion where all the girls proved to be excellent ambassadors for the school. Well done to all who were involved!
