Primary school sports news

Sporting round up so far for the summer term.

Primary school sports 1This term has been really busy for primary school sport with a number of competitions for years 3 through to 6.

We started the summer term with a Yr 3+4 tennis competition which due to the reliable British weather had to played indoors; slightly cramped conditions but still a well organised and effective event with all pupils thoroughly enjoying their experience.  The event was won by Stoborough they will go to represent the Purbeck area in the Dorset school Games finals.  Congratulations.

Yrs 4, 5 and 6 have also taken part in a swimming competition.  The standard of swimming is continuing to rise which excellent to see, and this was commented on by the county officials which help to run these events.  Numerous students were selected from here for the school finals from a number of schools, we wish them all luck.

Primary school sports 2Quad kids athletics was the next major event attended by a good number of the primary schools.  This involved all pupils to take part in 4 athletic events sprinting, distance, long jump and vortex throw.  All pupils that took part were a credit to their school and performed exceptionally well in the summer heat (finally).  The lucky school to represent the Purbecks in the school games is St Marys Swanage.  Well done and good luck.

Yr 3+4 were luckily enough to be able to take part in a Tri Golf competition which again was postponed due to horrendous rain.  Fortunately the sun finally came out and 10 teams took part.  An excellent competition with lots of exciting activities.  The winning schools were Stoborough and St Georges who again will compete at the School Games finals.

Primary school sports 3All of these events would not be able to run effectively without the continued help of The Purbeck School leaders, who again have been an absolute credit and many schools have commented on how mature and well mannered they are.  It has been a pleasure to work alongside these Year 9’s, many of which themselves will be representing The Purbeck School at the school games either as competitors or as leaders.

A big thank you to all that have helped out this year, hopefully everyone will be on board again next term.
