School Sports Organising Crew (SSOC)
This is our team of Year 5 and Year 6 pupils who have been chosen to become members of the School Sports Organising Crew (SSOC). The SSOC assist with the running of intra-school sporting events and playground activities. The SSOC also promote and support our annual School Games Day.
The SSOC demonstrate and promote these values: self belief, teamwork, determination, honesty, passion and respect.
The team meet on a regular basis to plan upcoming events. Please look at the school sports board in the main corridor for further details.
On Friday 2nd December some of our Year 4 pupils took part in a Rapid Fire Cricket Competition at the HECCSport Centre for Cricket, near High Wych. Rapid Fire Cricket was a new addition to the inter-school competition calendar this year. Our team played superbly and narrowly missed out on a semi-final spot on runs scored.
Under 11 Basketball Competition, November 2016
Eighteen primary schools across the Bishop’s Stortford and Sawbridgeworth area took part in this competition. Here is a report of the event by Maddie, Holly and Alana:
On 17th November 2016, we went to compete in a basketball competition at Birchwood High School (BSP) for Years 5 and 6. Holly, Maddie, Alana, Alice, Joe, Keaton, Matthew and Dylan played extremely well in the matches and got through to the Third and Fourth Play-Off. It was a fast-moving, aggressive game, and we came third out of 18 schools.
Tri Golf Competition for Year 4
A group of Year 4 children took part in a golf tournament at a local club. It was a wet and windy afternoon but they thoroughly enjoyed taking part and finished in 2nd place. Well done to our golfers!
