Sport Report: 22/01/2016

It’s been a frustrating week in PE, in which all the scheduled fixtures across both girls and boys PE were postponed due to the weather and unplayable surfaces. On a positive note, however, despite the inclement weather over 200 students have participated in one of our Extra Curricular clubs – all of which are now fully up and running. Read about Girl’s Fitness Club here.

The numbers at training have been particularly refreshing given the adverse weather and the playing fields pretty much being unplayable. The students willingness to participate and get involved in some form of physical activity, as well as a great level of commitment to improve as sportsmen and sportswomen, is exceptional. A full list of extra-curricular clubs, Football, Netball and Hockey fixtures can be found here.

The students’ attitude to PE lessons has also been refreshing; despite the weather and the threat of mud and rain, the students have been happy to carry on with their PE lessons with great attitude.

Hopefully next week we will see the start of our Extra Curricular fixtures; the girls have a County Hockey tournament on Tuesday and also Netball and Hockey fixtures at Newquay Tretherras on Wednesday. The boys start their Football Cup runs with fixtures against Torpoint for the Year 7s, Brannel the Year 8s, Fowey the Year 10s and Callington for the Year 9s.  All the Football fixtures are at home and spread across Tuesday and Wednesday starting at 3:30pm, and the Year 9s travel to Callington on Thursday.
