Hockey double Silver
Our year 3 & 4 children took part in this years first Hockey competition at Chatham House where they didn’t disappoint. After finishing top of the table they headed straight for the finals in a repeat of last years final against St Peters. The team battled superbly in the final and finished worthy runners up out of the Thanet Schools. Knowing that we had made it to the last 3 finals in the Hockey our year 5 & 6 team went out to show that they too had what it takes to compete at the highest level. After finishing the group stage top of the table they too made it to the final. This time against a strong Upton side we went 1-0 down and using our school values managed to finish the final 1-1. However there had to be a winner and during a golden goal finish Upton managed to score again with Garlinge once again finishing with silver medals. Well done everyone who played so well in all of their games!
There were some excellent performances from the children who took part in the cross country this term. The wind made the races tough to complete, but everyone came away with a medal for finishing. It was lovely to see our school values in action; perseverance against the weather, aspiration to be the best we could be, respect for the others in the races and teamwork to help our friends finish the race. A special mention must go to Mohtady who fell over on the start line but still managed to earn himself a silver medal!
The netball teams have been in action, playing in both the high 5 event, where Garlinge 1 missed out on the final by one point, and the festival. We have plenty to work on during our practices to make sure we are prepared for the Thanet Schools main competition next term!
This year we once again entered two teams into the annual Tri Golf competition and both teams did a fantastic job! Both teams thoroughly enjoyed the event and represented our school values to an amazing standard. Our first team coached and encouraged each other extremely well and their points tally positioned them as runners up of the overall competition. Well done to everyone who took part and keep up the good work!
This new event was a smash hit with the children who took part! There were plenty of different sports to try, but the favourite activity by far was the giant obstacle course!
