Two children from each class are chosen to be 'Sports Leaders' and are responsible for helping to organize and implement sporting events throughout the school year. The Sports Leaders provided excellent encouragement to all children during the 'Santa Dash', which everybody thoroughly enjoyed. They have also assisted with a diverse range of activities during 'Healthy and Active Fortnight', including: Football, Athletics, Multi-Skills, Gymnastics, Dance, Scooters, Go Karts and Zumba.
St Robert Bellarmine Christmas Fayre
The Year 5&6 Sport Leaders also ran a stall at the school Christmas Fayre, their stall was 'Pin the nose on the Snowman.'
The four children were confident, polite, helpful and extremely organised. They had great fun and thoroughly enjoyed the responsibility of running their stall.
All of the children who took part received a sweet and those that managed to pin the nose accurately were rewarded with a Christmas chocolate lolly.
All of the staff were incredibly proud of these children and visiting adults also commented on how well they organised themselves.
Congratulations again Sports Leaders, what a busy day you had!

Healthy and Active - 'Walk to School Day' Wednesday 13th June 2018.
The Sports Leaders made posters to advertise this event in school and on the day they collected the scores from each class.
We couldn't believe how many children from Nursery to Year 6 actually managed to walk in some way to school.
In total 194 children walked to school - how amazing is that!
The 'Walk to School' champions were Year 1 and Year 2.
Congratulations to them.
All children from Year 3, 4, 5 and 6 get an opportunity to attend swimming lessons during curriculum time. The progress of the children is reported termly and the children are closely monitored.
