School Games Gold Award

Christ Church Primary School is proud to have achieved the School Games Gold Award 2017-18, 2016-17 & 2018-19

The School Games Mark is a Government led award scheme launched in 2012, facilitated by the Youth Sport Trust to reward schools for their commitment to the development of competition across their school and into the community, and we are delighted to have been recognised for our success.

With a large total of young people competing in local inter-school competitions this year, we are extremely proud of our pupils for their dedication to all aspects of school sport, including those young volunteers, leaders and officials who made our competitions possible.

As part of our application, we were asked to fulfil criteria in the areas of participation, competition, workforce and clubs, and we are pleased that the hard work of everyone at our school has been rewarded again this year.

Borough Swimming Gala

The annual Borough swimming gala took place on Thursday and we sent a team of year 6 swimmers. They all performed really strongly in their events, which included a team relay. Bronwyn swam amazingly and won the gold medal for front crawl. There was a great team spirit and they all had lots of fun. Thank you to Miss Szotkowska and Mr Halliday for taking the team to the event. 

Year 4 Girls football

On Tuesday, 3rd October, a squad of seven Year 4 girls attended the Borough’s 5-a-side football festival at Kew AFC, Ham.

Our team showed excellent sportsmanship, great teamwork and there were strong stand-out individual performances: Poppy Palmer, 4L, as a fearless goalie and Saja Almugashi, 4P, as a nifty striker.

All the girls enjoyed their afternoon and are keen to represent the school on future occasions. Well done, girls!

Year 6 Girls Football

On Tuesday, 8th October, a team of eight year 6 girls took part in the Kingston Borough football tournament that was held in Chessington School. It was a very wet day and at one point it looked like the whole event would have to be cancelled when a deluge stopped play for fifteen minutes. Luckily, the weather improved slightly so the remaining games could be played.

The team played seven matches in total and won two of their games. They all played valiantly against some very stiff opposition and are to be congratulated for their resilience and superb teamwork. Great work girls! 

Borough Cross Country

On Wednesday, 16th October, twenty-nine year five and six pupils represented Christ Church at the annual Kingston Borough cross-country. They had all been selected by their teachers at trials held earlier in the term.

In spite of the weather, all the children were very excited and couldn't wait for their races. There were four races in total, year 5 girls, boys and year 6 girls and boys. Thirty-four schools took part and there were over 150 children in each race!

The children had to complete three full laps of Kingston Grammar School’s playing field, a distance of over two kilometres. The teams score points according to the final position of the runners - the lower the total score the higher the team is placed.

All the teams performed brilliantly and without fail, every single one of them came in the top 50% of the runners- a real achievement.

When the results were announced the year 5 girls had come third overall. Fantastic! Congratulations to all who took part, you were a real credit to your school.

Borough Basketball

We spent a fantastic afternoon at Chessington Community College at the Borough Basketball Tournament. In the group stage we played Burlington and won 14-0; St. Pauls who we beat 12-2 and finally Lovelace who we beat 16-0. Amazing results!

This meant that we went through to the final where we played Latchmere. It was a very tense match where the children worked incredibly hard and the level of skill and determination was phenomenal. Latchmere were very strong and won by 6 baskets to 4. I was immensely proud of all 10 players who showed great sportsmanship and showed resilience, determination and ambition.

A particular mention to Aiden who was awarded Most Valuable Player for the whole tournament- out of 60 boys!

Year 4 Boys Football

On Thursday 24th October, six Year 4 boys went to a friendly 5-a-side football tournament at AFC Kew. The team won two matches, drew one and lost one. Grand Avenue unfortunately scored in the last two seconds of the match and beat our side 1-0. All of the matches were played in torrential rain and the team showed great resilience to keep going when they were soaking wet. Everyone did very well.
