Today was an extra special day for St. Mary’s. This year we have introduced a ‘Sports Personality of the Year’ award for each class. The children were chosen for their contribution to sport and the sporting qualities that they have demonstrated. To commemorate this, we hosted a special assembly in which we celebrated all the fantastic sporting achievements that have taken place this school year. Mr Pilley, Chairman of Fleetwood Town Football Club, came along to share our celebration and present the children with their awards. It was a lovely ceremony and a super way to acknowledge the plentiful and varied sporting achievements by our children.
Gifted and Talented Day
Report Written by Tia and Dzhuliya who attended the event.
Firstly, we were separated into 4 groups after we had received our t-shirts from Coach Chris and Ash. After that, we all went outside to start our adventurous day and were then taken to meet our first instructor. The activities included races between the teams and ultimate frisbee. There were lots of other activities throughout the day and we got to take part in all of them. At dinner time, we were able to meet back up with our friends and have a chat about the day. We had a really good day at the Gifted and Talented Event and it was really good to push ourselves.
Congratulations to the school football team who beat Fleetwood Charity 3:2 in a fantastic game of football yesterday.
Tylor Kenyon represented the team for the first time and showed a great display of skill and passion.
It was a fantastic game to watch with the talented Jake Denny ensuring a win for the school.
Well done boys you are a credit to your school!
First Aid Club
Pupils from years 5 and 6 have been learning some basic first aid skills from Mrs. Mellow who runs Event Management and Training. They have so far learnt how to put somebody into the recovery position and some CPR. All very useful information for our children to learn and put into practice.
St Mary's school football team played Fleetwood Charity today in the first game of the new season and what a game it was!
The "new" team displayed outstanding skill, determination and passion and for the first game demonstrated that this is a team to watch out for this year. Unfortunately, the team lost 2:1 however, if they had of converted the many shots they had on goal, they would have easily won today. The wind played a major factor on the ability to convert goals and I am sure we are going to see many goals as the year progresses. What a fantastic start to the year. Well done Lads and thank you Kevin!
The annual swimming gala was held at the YMCA last night. St. Mary's were represented by an amazing group of children who showed tremendous determination, resilience and sportsmanship. Though we didn't make it to the finals, they are most certainly all winners. They did themselves and our wonderful school proud, well done team!
Well done to St Mary's football team who are continuing to improve. On Tuesday 9th January they battled hard and played united as a team to end the game with two goals. Fantastic team work! Final score 5:2 to Fleetwood Charity. Keep up the good work team!
