Members of the school council went to Durlston for the first day of Beat the Street for Purbeck and Poole.
We won! Today saw the St Mary’s Yr 5 & 6 football team bring home the Purbeck Cup.
Congratulations to all the triumphant players and to Mr White. Thank you to the tournament organiser and sponsor, and all the supporters through the (long!) season.
St Mary’s y4 football team won the Swanage Shield local tournament after an exciting final where they beat St Mark’s 4-2.
We are delighted to announce that St Mary’s has achieved the School Games Gold Mark Award for the 2017/18 academic year.
The School Games Mark is a Government-led award scheme launched in 2012, facilitated by the Youth Sport Trust to reward schools for their commitment to the development of competition across their school and into the community, and we are delighted to have been recognised for our success.
Regular visitors to the website will have seen many of the events that we have attended as part of our commitment to children’s sport and competition.
Congratulations to Mr White, PE coordinator, to all the children who have taken part, and to parents and other members of staff who have contributed their time.
Congratulations to our year 4s, 5s and 6s who took part in the Dorset School Games. What a brilliant day!
A big thank you to the Swanage crew from Dorset Fire & Rescue who visited St Mary’s this morning. They joined in our whole-school morning run then showed us round (and through!) their amazing offroad fire engine.
We were very lucky to be visited by a dancer from the Northern Ballet who gave workshops for years 2, 3 and 4. It was hard to capture the grace and beauty of the St Mary’s dancers, but Mrs White had a go…
Year 2 enjoyed an exciting afternoon of cricket skills at The Purbeck School.
Four local schools battled against one another in the annual Year 5 and 6,St Mary’s Hockey Tournament. We entered three teams who all demonstrated excellent hockey skills and sportmanship to secure the three top places. A big thank you to the other schools for participating and to Swanage and Wareham Hockey Club for their support in organising and executing the tournament.
Congratulations to our netball team for winning the Purbeck Netball Tournament.
