SILVER SPORTS AWARD.
For the school year 2017/18, our school obtained a silver award for the second year running through the School Sports Games Mark. This is achieved through attending events, tournaments and competitions organised by the Stockton Schools Sports Partnership. As well as this, the awarding body takes into consideration the work we do as a school behind the scenes such as additional stamina sessions, after school clubs, lunchtime clubs, adapting sessions to promote inclusion, providing extended opportunities such as A, B and C squads to maximise playing time along with inclusive groups.
The school also strives to offer a platform and a voice to pupils in order to help mould our sport into a bespoke format for Team Therese. This is partly achieved through our school sports council and lunchtime play leaders.
2017/18 was a hugely successful year for Team Therese, having accumulated no less than four sporting trophies and providing the Stockton Northfield district county with two cross country runners along with two district swimmers.
Our school was also heavily represented at the Tees Valley Athletics in events such as long jump, triple jump, 80m sprint, 600m endurance run, boys 400m relay and javelin (howler). This was rewarded with quite an impressive medal haul, although the most rewarding element was the determination shown by our pupils and them discovering hidden talents.
Last year also saw the emergence of our new Girls Football Team, made up largely of hugely enthusiastic y4 girls. With a lot of the team having not played in a competitive game before and only ever trained at school, we were delighted to reach the semi-finals of the Y4 girl’s football tournament without conceding a goal throughout, coming up short in a penalty shoot-out against the eventual winners. Really exciting to see how they do this year, watch this space…
From winning trophies at Middlesbrough Football Clubs Hurworth Training Complex, League winners, success in the pool, track and field, the school were enormously proud of all of our pupils, with really positive feeling that we are only just getting started !!
Not wanting to rest on our laurels, as a school we are striving to push on providing more sporting opportunities, supporting each other, pushing ourselves and each other, discovering further hidden talents, entering more competitions and hopefully winning more trophies for Team Therese.
Our over-all target is to achieve a gold award for sport and to try and offer opportunities for all pupils to represent the school in a sporting capacity.
A very exciting year ahead for Team Therese and one in which as a school we are looking forward to seeing what it may bring…
