School of the Month - Prendergast Vale School
At the tournament, there were six groups; Prendergast Vale was in group 5 on the orange pitch; we were accompanied by Hatcham Temple Grove, John Stainer and Holbeach, Tidemill Academy and Stillness primary school. Our two opening matches in the group stages ended in very damaging defeats (Both 1-0 to Tidemill Academy and John Stainer). However, the pupils of Prendergast Vale did not get disheartened by those two defeats; instead it spurred them on to earn two hard thought victories against HTG and Holbeach primary school. This victory was nothing more than emphatic. (3-0). We had to win our last game of the group stages to stand any chance of qualifying to the quarter finals but instead in finished in a thrilling (3-3) draw. The results of all five matches resulted in us finishing third in the group out of six schools, narrowly missing out on a quarter final spot as the top two teams from each group would qualify to the next round. I was extremely proud with all students that partook in this competition as they gave 100% effort in every game.
All pupils at the tournament were fantastic role models for the school, and showed a great attitude at all times. The individual that stood at the most and was awarded player of the tournament by Mr Singh….
Ollie Kok-Balmer (Year 6) - this individual earned himself a sporting spirit award for showing team work and respecting officials and referee decisions at all times.
