The School Games Mark is a Government led awards scheme launched in 2012 to reward schools for their commitment to the development of competition across their school and into the community. Schools in England are able to assess themselves across bronze, silver and gold levels.
The School Games is a unique opportunity to motivate and inspire millions of young people across the country to take part in more competitive school sport and we encourage and involve all children to participate in as much sporting activity as possible within our school.
Once again the children had the opportunity to showcase their talent during our annual Sports Day. All of the children had fun and showed excellent team-work and resilience in a variety of different races. Well done to St David's who were the winners this year!
A big thank you to all the parents and students for helping the day run smoothly!
The whole school had a great time participating in a diverse range of sporting events and activities during 'Healthy and Active Fortnight'. The children were able to showcase their talents and team-work during activities such as: Football, Athletics, Multi-skills, Gymnastics, Dance, Scooters, Go Karts and Zumba whilst learning about the importance of keeping healthy and active. They also competed against their peers in the Intra School Tournament which everybody thoroughly enjoyed.
In addition to the sporting events the children were set challenges in relation to promoting a healthy and active lifestyle. Each class was challenged to make a ‘healthy pudding’ which their classmates could try. We were so impressed with the delicious healthy puddings the children made!
‘Healthy and Active Fortnight’ ended with the annual Fun Run on Friday 2nd July. Everyone had a great time dancing and running, and we were so pleased that so many parents and relatives came to cheer on the children!
On 25th June 2018 seven girls from Year 6 participated in the Sefton High Five Netball Tournament, which took place at Savio. This was a great opportunity for the girls to display the skills they had learnt during Netball Club.
The whole school participated in the annual Fun Run on the 15th June 2018 to raise money for the Year 6 trip to Colomendy. All the children and parents in attendance had a fantastic time, and the children wore some great fancy dress costumes!
We also had our Walk to School Day with the Reception class winning the class certificate for the greatest number of children who walked.
In total 158 children from Nursery to Year 6 walked to school on a very wet morning. Well done to you all.
