Inclusive Football event for secondary aged students in mainstream and special schools.
Wednesday 22nd January 2020 – A bitterly cold morning but it didn’t stop the great turn out for our first PSSP Secondary & Special Schools Football at Goals for 2020. 7 teams came along, representing Cann Bridge, St. Boniface, Sir John Hunt and Plympton Academy. Over 38 students taking part in our friendly event aimed at promoting the School Games values of Respect and Teamwork. This event is a round robin competition with 5 points being awarded for a win, 3 points for a draw and 1 point for a loss. Although we do have a competitive element, this is not the focus for this festival. Everyone who takes part today receives a certificate and we do celebrate the winning team, but there is also a very special medal for one individual on every team for outstanding sportsmanship, respect and teamwork. The unenviable task of selecting just one student falls to the teachers – as much as they would like to give you all a medal, they have to choose just one. Well done if you were the worthy recipient this morning, you must have really impressed your teacher. There was some excellent Football played this morning and some great displays of respect and friendship. At the end of the morning, the scores were tallied, and the results calculated… Congratulations to Sir John Hunt ‘A’ team who were out overall winners today. Congratulations as well to St. Boniface ‘A’ team who were just a few points behind to take second place. Full table of results below. Well done to everyone who took part today, I really hope you all enjoyed playing as much as we did supporting you. I am already looking forward to our next event on Wednesday 11th March 2020.
