Tag Rugby Tournament 11th October 2017

On a drizzly Wednesday at Waterhall Sports Field, 20 of our Year 6 children took part in a tag rugby festival.  They were split into two teams of 10, our Whitehawk ‘Red’ team and Whitehawk ‘Blue’ team. 

The children first took part in some rugby activities, then played in three matches against other schools.  Both teams were victorious in one match each, and scored lots of tries.   Well done to all who took part- they did the school proud with their enthusiasm for the sport and teamwork in the matches!

Boys Football Tournament 29th September

On Friday 29th October, we ambled over to East Brighton Park with Mr Berry and Mr Chick to take part in a 7-a-side football tournament. Though ultimately we didn’t win, we performed with pride and progressed through to the champions section of the second stage after a fantastic runners-up placing in the first league. The first 2 games were particular highlights, as we won both with some excellent passing moves involving Harley, Rio and Maison and top-class finishing along with composed defending from Trai, Destiny and Brandon. In one of the final games we lost 1-0 (following some goalkeeping heroics from Harvey), hitting the post near to the end which would have given us a shot at qualification to the semi-finals. We also brought a key game back to 2-1 with a goal made by Lyrik and scored by Francis, only to concede 2 more when pushing for the equaliser. All in all, we could be proud of our positive attitudes and the effort that we put in for each other, and can now look forward to working hard in football club ready for the upcoming league season.

Girls football team 22nd sept 2017(1)

Congratulations to all who took part in the girls football tournament at East Brighton Park! For some it was the first time they had played in a football match and they did their school proud! The girls from Year 4, 5 and 6 won one of their three matches and lost two.  Their victory against Carden Primary was 2-1 to CAW and included goals from Summer and Aliyah.  In the other games we lost a close match 1-0 to Benfield, and were beaten by an excellent Balfour team 4-0. The girls played really well in all three matches, worked well as a team and are looking forward to playing in more matches this year.  Well done girls!
