October 2017

Cross Country

The runners represented the school very well with special mentions to Ella (y6) for her 4th place finish, Hayden 14th, Jake 17th place, Ruby for her 20th place and an extra special mention to Aimee for her superb effort after leading her race only to be injured midway through but having the grit to finish strongly.

Girl’s Football

Here’s a write up of the victorious girls from Monday!!

The Bishop Harvey Goodwin y5/6 girls football team came top of their group at Monday’s annual tournament at RRCA to qualify for the County Finals in Barrow next month.

From their six group games the girls won 3 (M/Mary’s 4-0, Shankhill 1-0 and Inglewood 1-0) and drew 3 (0-0 Brook St, 0-0 Norman St and 0-0 Belle Vue) to top their group and not concede a goal in the process! Well done girls and good luck in the next round!


Sporting Event with Invictus Games Athlete

The School was very excited to welcome GB Wheelchair Rugby Player Stuart Robinson to the school on Friday, 13 October. Stuart was a Royal Air Force Regiment Force Protection multiple commander from 1999 until 2013. Injured in Afghanistan in 2013, Stuart had to have both legs amputated. Since then, Stuart turned to wheelchair rugby and competed in the Invictus Games in 2014.

Stuart led a sponsored fitness circuit with all pupils, and a follow-up with a talk and question and answer session. The aim of the event was to inspire the pupils to take up sport generally, but just as importantly to encourage them to discover and then pursue their passion in life.
