Rockmount Sports Day
Hooray! Once again we have organised another successful annual 'Sports Day' competition in our school and we are glad to share some images of the occasion with you. Children competed in four teams and showed great teamwork and sportsmanship, which we emphasise in our PE lessons. Congratulations to all pupils and our parents and members of our Rockmount community who also participated in a 'race' as one of the main highlights of the occasion.
Trinity School Mixed (Boys & Girls) Football Competition
On Tuesday 21st March 2023,a group of year 4&5 pupils (boys and girls) were selected to represent our school in a 'Mixed' football competition at Trinity School, Croydon. There were about 16 schools present at the event who were put in groups to compete against each other. We are proud of the gallant performance of our children who were unbeaten in all the matches they played and also showed great sportmanship to their opponents from other schools.
On Thursday 1st December, some Year 5 and 6 pupils took part in a Sports Hall Athletics event at Harris Academy Crystal Palace. The children took part in a range of field and track events. This included Standing Long Jump, Standing Triple Jump, Soft Javelin, Chest Push and a variety of Relays and Obstacle courses. The children represented our school so well and we are very proud of them. It was a very enjoyable event and we had so much fun!
World Cup Football Event
This term, the World Cup kicked off in Qatar and here at Rockmount we played our own version of the event. Children were balloted to represent countries that participated in the event including the host nation Qatar, England, Wales, Portugal, Spain, Ghana, Germany and Japan. Over a 100 children participated in the tournament and enjoyed playing football to the delight of teeming football supporters around the Arena on every lunch break. The matches were quite competitive however the children showed great sportsmanship regardless of the results. After the event, we held a rewards assembly and children received medals for taking part. The best teams and players also received special trophies.
