Eight children were taken to Ellowes Sports College for the event. We entered both a team of boys and a team of girls consisting of four children who were selected to swim an individual stroke. They were required to compete against other primary schools in individual races in Freestyle, Backstroke, Breaststroke and Butterfly. The four individual swimmers in each team then swam together in a whole team relay.
The event was tense but very exciting and the children did extremely well behaving exemplary at all times. The boy’s team came 5th place overall and the girl’s team came an impressive 2nd place overall. Both teams were presented with certificates and able to share their success in whole school assembly.
Well done to all swimmers that took part in both the time-trials and the gala. We are very proud of you all!
September to November 2014
Mount Pleasant Netball Team entered the Stourbridge Primary School Netball League and played various matches against other schools from September 2014 to November 2014. The team was selected from the after school club which the children attended fortnightly due to high numbers wanting to be part of the club.
Both girls and boys played in the league following the High Five Netball rules where the children are required to rotate, therefore learning and experiencing playing each position. All children were required to shoot, attack and defend developing their skills. They all enjoyed the competition factor gaining the ‘want to succeed’ attitude, but at the same time learning to respect their opponents.
Five matches were played and Mount Pleasant won four and drew the last game. They came an impressive second place in the league, only beaten by goal difference. They received individual medals and a trophy for the school. We are very proud of their achievements and look forward to another successful league in the Summer Term.
Well done to you all!
