Sports Presentation Evening
On Tuesday 12th July, 76 pupils who had worked hard across the year, without fear of failure and demonstrated a thirst for excellence were invited to the 10th Anniversary of Sports Presentation evening. As teachers we spend most of our time looking to the future and thinking about the next event and sometimes forget to enjoy the present. This evening gives us an opportunity to stop and reflect, an opportunity to celebrate the contribution these pupils have made to the PE department and to the school. It is these pupils commitment and determination that inspire us as teachers to work harder and provide them with more opportunities to show their full potential. Each pupil walked away with a trophy and a personalised tracksuit top which they can wear in PE lessons to demonstrate their personal success.
The look on the pupils faces demonstrates how much the evening means to them personally and wear their tops with pride and see their names displayed in the academy's trophy cabinet.
Alongside the main evening we also run an activities evening where the winners come along for a different experience in relation to teambuilding and overcoming varying obstacles. This aids their development as a more rounded individual for the future and how they approach different environments and situations in life.
