Sports update from Mr Hutchinson.
AVSSP Girls Futsal
Our Girls Futsal team competed in AVSSP’s Girls Futsal Competition against schools from across Amber Valley and finished 3rd! The Girls won 3 matches out of 5 and were just 2 points off 1st place! We should all be proud of them not just for their achievements on the pitch but also their focus and behaviour off it. They were fantastic ambassadors for our school. This was evident when a child on the opposing team had suffered an injury during the match and had to go off. The first thing the team did at the full-time whistle was to go and ask the injured child how they were. It was an incredible show of sportsmanship and the children should be very proud of themselves.
Thank you to AVSSP for another fantastic night of Futsal. Thank you to Miss McKirdy for transporting some of the team to the event and for supporting the children.
A huge thank you again to the many parents who were able to help with lifts to/from the event, as a school we’re very lucky to have such supportive parents.
AVSSP Health & Wellbeing Conference
Our newly appointed Mini Leaders from Mrs Hibbitt’s Year 6 class represented at our school at the annual AVSSP Health & Wellbeing Conference. The children learnt fitness activities that they will be able to lead on the playground at break and lunchtimes. They also learnt about the health dangers of some foods and fizzy drinks (just ask them how much sugar is in a bottle of coke!), learnt how to make healthy smoothies and spent some time discussing their mental health and wellbeing. The children once again represented us incredibly well with a high level of maturity. It will be great to see them put what they’ve learnt into practice in their Mini Leader role over the rest of the school year.
