The Y6 Apprentice Challenge 2019: Y6 set up and ran their own businesses as part of our Apprentice Challenge. They began at October half-term and ran their business into January, when they then presented what they had done to a panel of judges. Between them, they raised £2620.84 for charity.
Cross-country Competition 2018: Six teams of pupils from Year 4-Year 6 took part in this year's school cross-country competition.
School Sports Gold Award: Due to our participation in both inter and intra school's sports competitions, as well as the very varied menu of sports on offer in PE lessons, we have been awarded the Gold School Games Mark for 2018-2019. This represents our continuing commitment to delivering the best sport/PE possible for all children and also our dedication to ensuring as many pupils as possible are involved in a wide range of physical activity both inside and outside of school.
In May, the whole school took part in the St Edward's race for Life, raising valuable money for Class 5's charity, Cancer Research. The event was organised by the Y6 Faith in Action group, and together we raised an amazing £3,339.50 through pupil sponsorship. Well done to everyone.
Our team of Y5/6 boys and girls won the local area Sportshall Athletics Competition in October 2017. They will now compete in the Leeds East finals. Well done and good luck with the next round.
Teams of Y4, Y5 and Y6 pupils took part in the first round of the Leeds Cross-Country competition. Both our Y5 boys team and our Y4 girls team have made it through to the next round - congratulations to them!
All of our Y5 and Y6 pupils were challenged to start up and run their own businesses last half-term. They wrote business plans, were given a £3 start up loan, then ran their business for several weeks, constantly re-investing their profits. Finally, they wrote a presentation about their business and delivered this to a panel of judges (two of our Governors). The judges chose five finalists (pictured here) and one overall winner. Between them, Y5/6 raised over £2000 for charity. Well done to everyone.
Our Y3/4 tennis team, having won the local cluster competition, competed in the Partnership final in April. They played brilliantly, winning the competition, to become the Partnership Champions. They will now go on to play in the overall Leeds finals.
During Lent the children organised and ran their own varied menu of activities in order to raise money for charity. This is part of their Lenten Almsgiving duty. The children raised £1,190; with some of the money they sponsor a child (Yovana) in Bolivia. The School Council has decided to split the rest of the money between the Bishop's Fund (which supports the poor in Africa) and Water Aid (as one of the acts of mercy is to "give drink to the thirsty").
All pupils in Class 4 took part in an inter-school skipping competition in March 2016. The children were crowned the "skip-dance" champions for their innovative skipping dance routine, and they were also overall winners of the competition.
Run for Fun, April 2015:
The whole of KS2 joined 2000 pupils, from 30 Catholic Primary Schools in Leeds to "Run for Fun" in aid of the Ann Mcquire Memorial Fund. Pupils collected sponsorship for this worthy cause and had a great time at the fun run.
