Sport Report: 06/11/2015

The start of a new half term has coincided with a new range of activities available for students to participate in both their PE lessons and also their extra curricular provision.

Despite being quiet on the fixtures front this week, the students have continued with their excellent commitment to training in Rugby and Netball as always and attendance has been encouraging at our new clubs. On Thursday we are now offering students opportunities to participate in some alternative activities in the form of Basketball, Table Tennis and Box Fit. In January we will also be starting Volleyball on a Wednesday and Cricket on a Friday. It is hoped the broader range of activities will attract yet more students to PE and provide them an opportunity to participate in physical activity, improve physically, enhance social skills, challenge themselves to improve and ultimately enjoy and have fun during PE. All full list of extra curricular activities is below

Extra Curricular PE Clubs;

Monday – Y7/Y9 Rugby, Y7/Y8 Netball

Tuesday – Y8/Y10/Y11 Rugby, Y9/Y10/Y11 Netball

Wednesday – Fixtures

Thursday – Y9/Y10/Y11 Basketball, Y7/Y8 Table Tennis, Y9/Y10/Y11 Girls Box Fit

Friday – Y7 Rugby, All Years Girls Netball

Girls Hockey

One sporting fixture did take place this week and that was the Y9 Girls County Hockey Tournament at Penair. The girls were given a really tough draw and competed well against Newquay Tretherras, Mounts Bay, Penair and Truro School all of whom are strong sporting schools. The girls defended resolutely throughout and much like the Y10 County tournament progression is evident in the girls Hockey, the focus in training now is very much attacking and applying pressure on the opponents goal. Millie Bray and Claudia Beaumont Olver shared two most valuable player awards each. Please find a picture of the girls attached.
