Football Tournament (Year 4, 5 & 6)
Well done to our Year 4, 5 & 6 children who represented the school at the Goals Football Tournament on Wednesday 19th September 2018. Here is a message from Claire McCormack (Plymouth School Sports Partnership) the organiser of the event: "A blustery day today for our first PSSP Primary & Special Schools Football event for this school year. A great turn out with 9 teams taking part in our fully inclusive event. Teams from Montpelier, Plympton St. Maurice, Leigham, Pomphlett, Oreston, Prince Rock, Marine Academy Primary, Woodford and Cann Bridge all came along to take part. This event is not only an opportunity to represent their schools and compete but we also use it as an opportunity to celebrate some outstanding sportsmanship values such as Respect, Determination and Team Work. This is a round-robin competition with 5 points allocated for a win, 3 points for a draw and 1 point for a loss. Everyone who takes part receives a certificate but we also award a very special medal to an individual on every team; this unenviable task of selecting just one player falls to the teachers from each school – they are looking for some outstanding displays of sportsmanship, respect or team work. Well done if you were the lucky recipient today – you must have done something to really impress your teacher! It could not have been closer today for the top spot – we had two teams finish on the same points so in order to calculate the final result, we looked back over the total number of goals scored by each team…incredibly, both teams had scored exactly the same amount of goals! It now came down to the number of goals conceded throughout the tournament… Huge congratulations to Montpelier who were the overall winners today and also to Oreston who were in second place by the narrowest of margins – 2 goals difference! Well done to everyone who took part today – you all played incredibly well and I really hope that you enjoyed playing. I would like to thank the fantastic Young Leaders from Devonport High School for Girls who came along to referee and score our games for us today – it is really thanks to their hard work that this event ran as smoothly as it did, so thank you all. I am already looking forward to our next event – Wednesday 07th November – hope to see you all there."
