We held an outdoor whole-school assembly to choose groups and teams for the inter-house football competition that will run alongside the other football competition taking place now… details of results will follow.
Children in year 1 & 2 had a brilliant afternoon of multiskills. Thank you to the staff from The Purbeck School for planning and running this session, and to our brilliant Bronze Ambassadors who assisted them so enthusiastically.
A massive congratulations to all the Year 5 and 6 pupils who were involved in the Purbeck and Christchurch finals of Indoor Athletics. St Mary’s won the event for the first time, defeating some much larger primary schools from East Dorset. This was a testament to the hard work and dedication shown by the children, who have been practising long and hard, as well as the dedication of Mr White.
Also a big well done to the handball team who won all seven matches to qualify for the Dorset School Handball final to be held at a later date. They played with excellent teamwork and had some good performances beating St Mark’s 7-1 as well as Stoborough 5-2. This was a mixed event with five players on the court at one time. The basic rules of handball are you must pass or bounce the ball within three strides and shoot outside of a D.
St Mary’s athletics team were able to produce an excellent second place in the Dorset School Games Quad Kids event. Comprising of 75m sprint, 600m run, a broad jump and a throw the pupils worked extremely hard on a hot day to prove how talented they are and how their extra training has paid off. A special mention must go to Lauren who won best girl overall and Olivia for finishing third.
St Mary’s were the only single-form entry school to reach the final and achieving second place was an excellent achievement.
St Mary’s has achieved the Gold School Games Mark award (again)
for their commitment, engagement and delivery
of competitive school sport in 2018/19.
