What a brilliant day our students (and staff) had yesterday at the Northamptonshire Sport School Games County Finals. This event is open to both primary schools and secondary schools to participate in. We took three teams to the event including Yr7 Cycling, Yr10 Rounders and Yr 8&9 Hockey. In addition to these teams 22 leaders also attended and helped organise and deliver the Archery, Tri Golf and Netball to the primary schools competing in these events.
The Summer Games programme is developed around a number of core values: Determination, Honesty, Passion, Respect, Self-Belief and Teamwork.
These are awarded in the form of stickers and trophies to those who have demonstrated one of these values. These not only apply to the competitors but their team managers and coaches as well as those spectating. As usual our leaders were absolutely fantastic and showed real professionalism, fairness and kindness. Many leaders were commended for their umpiring skills and ease of communication with the primary school children and their teachers.
We had a very successful day and our teams were also fantastic and all came back with medals!
• Y8/9 boys hockey - Bronze
• Y9/10 girls rounders - Silver (only just beat in a count back after a 3 way tie!)
• Y7 Cyclist - Gold (individual medal winners and team Gold)
Just another day at the office with Sponne Students!
