It was with great disappointment that we have had to cancel the sports presentation evening 2019-20. It is always a highlight of the school year for myself and the PE staff where we get to celebrate all of our pupils’ wonderful achievements. Due to the current situation, we have been unable to plan for when we could bring all our pupils together and celebrate their achievements. However, we do plan to hold the 2020-21 awards next summer to celebrate all of the achievements yet to come.
Even with last school year being cut short by a whole term we still had an unbelievable amount of successes to celebrate and this goes to show what a talented set of students we have. I enjoyed seeing the amount of teams and competitions we enter increasing again and this gives all the PE staff as much of a sense of pride as winning the competitions. My own highlights of the year were watching the year 7’s start their time at Archbishop Temple with huge numbers in all sports and I hope this continues. The year 9’s consistently being the year group to fill the lunch time Inter-house competitions and play with such desire, passion and competitiveness. The year 10’s excelling in any competition with real quality and desire to improve was also a highlight. Not to mention seeing District and County winners come back to school with smiles on their faces and medals around their necks.
Below is a video of the highlights and winners from a much shortened 2019-20.
Sports Personality of the Year Award
For this award, we take into account sports performance, participation and attitude in classes. We have had some fantastic sports performers win this award in the past and this year is no different. Some notable runners up in the award this year are Harvey, Leander and Ellen.
This year our winner is Kianna who is one of the most talented sports stars in her year. She has excelled in and out of school in a variety of sports focusing heavily on Netball and Athletics throughout the years. She has also happily got involved in any other sports asked to and was always a credit to the school.
Her attitude in practical classes is second to none, giving 100% all at all times and always being competitive. Her desire to win is the best and I am sure she will succeed in whatever sports she chooses in the future. This attitude is mirrored in her theory classes where again this has seen her consistently working above her target.
Well done Kianna!
