Town Sports

Report from Mr Pettefer, Miss Tagg and Mrs Wallis:

The sun shone on the King’s Park stadium at this year’s Town Sports sporting extravaganza. Sixteen pupils were selected to represent QPA in five different disciplines.

Every single member of the team wore their new kit with pride (thank you to our two Year 6 pupils for your key-ring creating endeavours!) and took part fully in the day. From competing in their own events, to supporting their peers and celebrating each other’s successes, they were an absolute credit to the school.

Four of the team secured places in the finals and we came away with one bronze and two silver positions.

We are extremely proud of all the children!

Congratulations to Windsor who won this year’s Sports Day. Hanover came a close second, with Steward and Tudor in equal bronze position. Well done to all of our pupils for their enthusiasm and grit on the day. Enjoy the medals!

Sports Ambassadors

The Sports Ambassadors started their leadership lunchtime activities today. This included lots of exciting games and activities for Years 3 and 4, that were completely led and run by the sports ambassadors. The children thoroughly enjoyed the games and the ambassadors demonstrated fantastic enthusiasm and outstanding leadership qualities. ‘Leadership lunchtime’ will take place every Monday, Wednesday and Friday lunchtime.

Netball tournament

Yesterday saw the High Five netball squad A.K.A. ‘Team Tagg’ face their first ever inter-school netball tournament at Bournemouth School for Girls. Over twenty local schools took part in the exciting event on a beautiful, if somewhat chilly, afternoon.

After only a few practice sessions, the committed team of Year Six girls secured their first victory in their opening match! As the afternoon unfolded the team demonstrated their strength of character: grit whilst facing Arctic like temperatures; adaptability when continuously changing pitches and rotating team positions; optimism as they constantly remained positive, even in the face of Olympian like opposition.

The whole squad were a credit to QPA and it was wonderful to watch the quality of their game progress throughout the afternoon. The next match for the team is on Thursday 8th February. If there are any pupils wishing to join the team then please see either Miss Tagg or Mrs Wallis.
