Hull School Games
Sirius Academy hosted the year 3 and 4 Hull primary schools Sportshall Athletics competition on Friday 6th March. A total of 12 visiting primary schools entered into the competition and a huge 216 year 3 and 4 children took part. This competition was supported by our Sports Scholarship students who took on various roles including Track Officials, Field Officials and Event Supervisors. These students are working towards their level 2 sports leadership award and these School Games competition are providing them with valuable experience and knowledge. The competition ran smoothly and all the visiting staff and students had a fantastic time. Mrs Wilkinson from Rokeby primary commented;
“Just wanted to say a massive thank you for this afternoon's athletics competition. The children really enjoyed themselves and loved taking part in various different events. The event was really well organised and ran really smoothly. Thanks also for appreciating that there are some children who cannot be photographed and setting something in place for this. The pink bands are a great idea! Also, thank you and well done to the Sirius students who were helping this afternoon. Please pass on a particular thanks to Harry, who was very polite and well-mannered when speaking to staff from our school.”
Neasden Primary school won the competition and will now progress to represent the Sirius Academy cluster in the Humber School Games during April. This is the last mass participation School Games event being held at Sirius Academy this academic year. A total of 590 primary school children have visited Sirius to compete in Athletics, Badminton and Dodgeball events all supported by our keen sport students.
