"Sports for School - Tuesday 19th June"
Well, what a morning we had in school yesterday! It was the day of our "Sports for School" event and it really was fantastic from start to finish. Omar, our coach and Alistair, our athlete put us all through our paces in the sponsored event, each class completed their circuits with smiles and determination.
Then Alistair Patrick-Heselton gave the most inspirational assembly which had every child listening in awe as he shared his life story from the moment as a young child he decided he wanted to become a professional footballer, through all the ups and downs and the challenges he faced following a serious car accident, right up to now.
His message was something we at Sutton Courtenay tell the children all the time "You can do anything you want, if you work hard enough and enjoy it" He also showed us some pretty amazing skipping skills!
As your children were so amazing and completed the circuits they can now start collecting their sponsorship money. Please return the forms and money by Tuesday 26th June.
Well the season is over for our Football Team but we hope to have a friendly before the end of Term 6. We have been really impressed with how the team have played and represented Sutton Courtenay School. They showed great sportsmanship and resilience even when faced with defeat.
Mr Stoodley has been working with some of the Year 5 potential team players for next year and we look forward to a great season!
Tri -Golf Festival
On Tuesday 12th June 10 children from Year 4 are taking part in a Tri-Golf Festival at Drayton Golf Club. They will be heading there at the end of the school day to compete in 8 different station activities where they will be awarded points for how well they work as a team and complete the games.
We wish them luck and hope they have fun!
