Sports Leaders Praised

To PE Head of Dept,

 

 

In my role as a TA at a local primary school, I recently took some of my pupils to Lansbury Bridge for the KS1 multi skills event.  St Augustine’s students were there as Sports Leaders, organising and supervising the children in the various events.

I felt the need to contact you to tell you what fantastic ambassadors for your school the Year 9's were - I was particularly struck by their enthusiasm; their friendly manner; and how well they engaged with adults and children alike.

I thought it important that you knew just what a wonderful job they did and that they represented St Augustine’s PE department superbly.

 

Kind regards

Irene Kennedy

Congratulations to 7K who were crowned Y7 Inter form football winners. Over a period of 7 weeks they have competed against other Y7 forms before becoming champions. Well done to all students who participated in the competition giving up their lunch times on a weekly basis to represent their form.

Congratulations to 8H who were crowned Y8 Inter form football winners. Over a period of 7 weeks they have competed against other Y8 forms before eventually defeating 8R in the final 2-1.  Well done to all students who participated in the competition giving up their lunch times on a weekly basis to represent their form.

Congratulations to the Y8 Basketball team who won the St Helens Schools Basketball tournament at Hope Academy on the 7th March 2019. The boys defeated St Cuthbert’s, Cowley and Hope Academy before beating Rainford in the winner takes all final game. In a final that was in the balance Jayme Johnson stepped up to score the winning basket with just seconds remaining. An excellent effort by all the students involved. Well done to the team of Liam, Adrean, Declan, Josh, Jayme, Oliver and Lewis.

A great result for our year 7 netball team who produced a fantastic team performance at the recent St Helens Central League with a great win over St Cuthbert’s. Fabulous shooting from Rebecca and Keira  helped us to the win. A tighter game against Rainhill saw some good performances narrowly defeated 3 -1. Unfortunately, we were then up against an experienced Rainford team who showed us how to play. All experience and we showed determination and resilience, never once giving up!

Special mention to Janusha and Demi Lee who were loaned out to a depleted St Cuthbert’s team.

The Year 7 football team defeated Sutton Academy with an emphatic 6-2 victory. Goals from Kyle (2), Alfie, Charlie, Charlie and Jamie ensured comfortable progression to the 2nd round of the St Helens Cup. Well done to all 17 boys on the evening who were excellent ambassadors for the school

The Year 8 football team continued their unbeaten start to the season with a 2-1 victory over Sutton Academy. Goals from Maksymilian and Thomas ensured the victory. Well done to all the students involved and keep up the hard

work.

The Year 8 football team continued their good start to the campaign with a thrilling 3-3 draw at Hope Academy. Goals from Oliver, Lewis and Dylan earned the team a point in a game were we should have taken all three. Well done to all the boys involved.

Congratulations to Rebecca who competed in the North West Gymnastics Championships and finished with 1 bronze, two silvers and a gold medal on apparatus pieces

Tranmere Rovers first year scholar goalkeeper Joe has been announced as part of the England under 19 Futsal squad to be part of the England training camp at St.Georges Park.

Academy Manager Andy Parkinson said:

“We’re really happy for Joe to get his call up and be given the opportunity to represent the country in Futsal.

“Futsal has been part of the Club for a few years now and we feel that it helps to develop players, not just in outfield positions but also goalkeepers. The skills that you learn are transferrable between the sports.

“It will be good to see Joe experience training at an international level and we’re sure he will make the most of the opportunity.”
