A Recreated Sports Day

Last week, a group of QPA children met (distantly) together to recreate sports day at Strouden Park. Erin, Billy, Lola and Phoebe from Year 5 and Tom from QPIA took part in egg and spoon races, running, hurdles, long jump, head balance and the ‘put-on-the-clothes’ obstacle race.

They all had a fantastic time and wanted to share with everyone their success!

Well done guys, it looks like a brilliant event!

Y6 Netball Team Tagg Triumph!

After winning all our games in this year’s league, Team Tagg secured themselves a place in the BSSA High 5 netball league semi finals, for the second year running.

As we strolled down the hill to the David English centre in the spring sunshine, we were reminded of why we are lucky enough to be working in education. Seven excited, enthusiastic and incredibly hard working young people could hardly contain their excitement!

We were drawn against St. Catherine’s and as play began we watched full of pride as the team worked tirelessly to secure a 7-2 victory.

We had made it to the finals …

Full of determination the team leapt into action against Park school. With Olympic style umpiring unfortunately we were unable to continue our winning streak. We do however feel truly victorious in our efforts and enthusiasm as the crowd demonstrated during the awards ceremony.

The team were also overwhelmed by the support we received from parents and colleagues, some on their day off with their mini cheerleaders and some no longer at QPA! Not forgetting our school mascot who also put in an appearance for the event!

Sports Day

The weather has been kind to us today and allowed for the full schedule of events to be held at our Sports Day. Everybody entered into the variety of events with enthusiasm and positivity: congratulations to all participants!

Entrepreneurs of the future

One of our Year 6 pupils decided that the school needed new school sports kit to wear during the Town and County sports events to be held during June. Together with her friend, over £295 has been raised by handcrafting bookmarks and key rings which have been sold at various events. They have also raised money through organising cake sales.

We are really proud of the independence that these pupils have shown and of their hard work and dedication in achieving their aim. Amazing team spirit – well done girls!

Netball

Congratulations to our Year 6 netballers who yesterday achieved the feat of becoming the second best team in Bournemouth at the primary league finals.

Although losing to St. Walburga’s Primary in the final, our pupils won their semi-final match against St. James’ Academy and have made huge progress over the last year under the tutorage of Miss Tagg and Mrs Wallis. They showed true grit throughout the competition and represented our school extremely well.

High 5 latest news – win against Winton!

A dreary, damp afternoon did nothing to dampen the spirits of QPA’s High 5 Team Tagg.  This, our second league match against Winton Primary, took place on Wednesday 6th February.  After a brief warm up and tactical team talk, play began.  QPA were spritely from the start, setting a fast pace from the onset, both teams scored in the first quarter. The second quarter was controlled by our excellent play, resulting in two goals from QPA.

Play in the third quarter was dominated by excellent defence from both teams – no goals were score by either team. We were two goals up going into the final quarter, nails were bitten and whistles were tooted.  QPA went on to score a further goal with Winton adding one more to their score sheet too.  The final score was 4-2 to QPA, another sterling performance from Team Tagg – well done one and all!  We are immeasurably proud of your dedication and commitment. The next league game is scheduled for 27th February.
