Abby Burtenshaw took overall control of the event, which involved planning it, contacting all the PE coordinators from the primary schools in advance, advising them of rules, timings and the order of events. She collected and organised her team of 20 sports leaders to set up all the necessary equipment for the 12 different events and produced the scoresheets. After Abby had briefed the leaders on the expectations of them and how to score, organise and run the events, she explained the festival to the 10 teams of children, their staff (including headteachers) and supporting parents.
The events included hockey dribbling, basketball and football shooting, throwing activities, running and agility tests, speed bounce and catching and agility games.
The leaders were an excellent advert for the school, rising to the challenge of leading their own teams and ensuring all the players understood the rules, whilst coaching and encouraging them to improve.
It was fantastic to see our sports leaders being organised to produce a quality event, showcasing their abilities to the wider community. They were all, but especially Abby, a real credit and great advert for the school.
Ferring came third, Georgian Gardens “Lions” came second and the winners were St. John the Baptist “Cheetahs”.
