The Team Therese cross country runners were absolutely fantastic with all of our runners making it through the initial run at a very cold and wet Our Lady & St Bede back at the turn of the year. It was then on to an extremely boggy Preston Park and remarkably, in the most testing of conditions, Ethan Marron and Noah Morgan managed to finish in the qualifying places. By doing so, they have both qualified for the Tees Valley County finals at Stewart Park in June. Fingers crossed for better conditions this time around.
CHANGE FOR LIFE FESTIVAL
A group of our Y5’s went over to Durham Universities Stockton sports campus to find out different ways in which we can be healthy and lead active lifestyles. They tried new sports such as Skip-2B-fit, extreme frisbee, cheerleading, blanket volley ball and speed ball.
Our Y5/6 swimmers have had another fantastic season. After initial qualifiers, the swimmers and their respective relay teams made it through to the finals in Billingham, swimming in front of large crowds at the forum. We managed a very impressive medal haul on the evening. Even more impressive was Benjamin Gallagher and Harry Pickering being selected to represent the Stockton District in the Tees Valley County finals at the Dolphin centre in Darlington where they met team GB swimmer Chris Cook.
Our Y6 school football team competed in the Middlesbrough Football Club Premier League primary stars, with the final being played at Wembley, unfortunately we fell short in the group stages in our first competitive fixtures of the year.
The Y4 football team have had an amazing season, winning the Stockton Schools District league, only dropping points once when they drew 1-1 with St Patrick’s, who we then went on to beat in the final 2-0. This was the school’s first ever football trophy.
They then followed this achievement up by winning the Lee Stephenson Cup at Rockcliffe training complex, home of Middlesbrough Football Club. This competition was watched by some of the clubs younger stars as well as some media staff who interviewed the team at the end.
Year 4’s amazing winning streak came to an end when they lost the Stockton School’s Sport Partnership cup final on penalties. This was a cruel blow having made our way to the final without conceding a single goal, winning every match.
FA SKILLS COACHING
We have recently started an exciting programme provided by the Durham FA in which our pupils from years 3,4,5 and 6 receive an hours intensive coaching from FA skills coach Liam Cox. The programme works on a lot of different sporting fundamentals but with a footballing twist. This will run every Wednesday through to half term, with the school receiving a Premier League Stars award upon completion.
