On Monday 1st October the School took part in their first official Sports Week. The aim of the Sports Week was to positively promote physical activity to pupils, by encouraging them to be increasingly active through attending a range of Sports Clubs.
Sports Week was a great success, with 111 attendances across the 6 clubs which included Dodgeball, Football, Hockey, Running/Fitness and Ultimate Frisbee, with some of the more diverse clubs proving to be the highest attended. It was fantastic to see all of the clubs so well attended and pupils increasing their knowledge in a range sports whilst learning new skills and techniques, but most important was the pupils’ obvious enjoyment and enthusiasm in participating in the clubs.
In addition to the clubs, we were privileged to have Miss Gaunt from Downe House School come in to deliver an introduction to Lacrosse Workshop for the Form 5 pupils. They had a fantastic morning learning some of the most important core skills required to play the game including the ‘Triple Threat’ ball carrying position, collecting a grounded ball, passing, receiving and shooting on goal. The girls really enjoyed playing a new sport which some might get the opportunity to take up in secondary school.
A huge thank you to all the pupils and teachers who attended the clubs, making the first Sports Week such a success.
We look forward to delivering another Sports Week during either the Spring or Summer term.
