St Joseph's Catholic Primary School

Sporting Achievements 2018

Throughout the school year, we take part in numerous sporting events where we compete against local primary schools in sports such as rounders, cricket, cross country, swimming and more. We also participate in a football and netball league throughout the year within the primary school Catholic cluster.

Take a look at some of the sporting achievements we have attained this year so far.

KS1 (Y2) Athletics

Following on from the Year 2 class taster delivered by Hart School staff a few weeks ago, the Year 2 team took part in an indoor athletics festival at the Hart School and finished in a very respectable 4th position out of the fourteen schools that took part. Well done to all those that represented the school.

Inter-School Handball Tournament

Pupils from Key Stage 2 took part in a free taster session and mini-tournament at Cardinal Griffin in the sport of handball. Having never played this sport before, the team quickly learnt enough of the rules and skills to be able to play against other local teams. A win, a loss and a draw meant that they experienced the highs and lows of competitive sport whilst representing the school in a new sporting discipline. Well done to all of those that took part.

Rugeley (and Surrounding Areas) Inter-School Football Tournament

We are very proud to say that our boys football team secured a tournament victory at a large football tournament held at Rugeley leisure centre. After four emphatic wins, our team are now waiting to progress to the next level of tournament competition. What impressed teachers so much was the team's spirit, communication and selflessness in ensuring that all members contributed to the team's success. Included in the wins was a match which was won by a considerable 15 goals to none! Fantastic team work- well done!

Staffordshire & Stoke-On Trent School Games Inclusive Festival 

Representatives from our school took part in the Paralympic section of the school games and finished in an impressive 8th position. They took part in events like boccia, goalball and kurling- which made their result even more impressive. They even managed to meet former Olympian Kristian Thomas who was there to spectate and enjoy the games.

Rugeley Schools Sports Finals

The end of year sports day for all the Rugeley schools took place at the Hart School.  The St Joseph's team consisted of every single member of the Year Six class and because of their enthusiasm and hard work, they finished in a very respectable fourth place, just outside the medals!

Cross Country

Following a fantastic team performance with a record number of first place finishes, St Joseph's retained the trophy for the 2018 Rugeley Schools Cross Country Tournament being crowned champions for the second year in a row! St Joseph's pupils also secured the fastest boy's time with two of our pupils being joint winners of this accolade. Congratulations on another splendid team and individual performance!

 

Rugeley Schools Football

Making it through to the finals after an impressive performance in the preliminary rounds, our school football team fought valiantly but eventually succumbed to some extremely strong competition. An impressive 4-0 in the final match meant that the team finished on a high and showed excellent determination right to the end.
