Date What have we be doing in Sport at St Christopher's School? Smile for the camera!
7th June 2017

On 7th June, pupils from Years 3 and 4 took part in a Tri-Golf Tournament at Herne Bay High School. St Christopher's School pupils chipped and putted golf balls against 12 other schools from the local area. 

Eight events aimed to test the pupil's ability to chip and putt golf balls at and through targets as well ascombining the two disciplines in the "Drive for Show - Putt for Dough". 

It was an excellent event and pupils always benefit from competitive sports as well as being introduced to new sports they may not have tried before. Well done to our pupils for a great effort. We love taking part in School Games events and following the Kent Schools Games values of "determination, honesty, respect, passion, teamwork and self-belief".

Eight events aimed to test the pupil's ability to chip and putt golf balls at and through targets as well as combining the two disciplines in the "Drive for Show - Putt for Dough".

Spring 2017 On 9th February 2017 a team of year 6 Dodgeball players (selected from a hat!) attended a local competition at Canterbury High School. Pupils took part in 5 fixtures in total, winning 2 and losing 3. For a first attempt at a local dodgeball competition it was a very good effort! 
 

Year 6 pupils from St Christopher's School joined 14 other schools from their local area to take part in a School Games Multi-School Event at Herne Bay High School in their Athletics Centre. Featuring track and field events from relays, long jumps, vertical jumps and javelins (albeit the soft version!) pupils got a taste for competitive sports with link-minded sports enthusiasts.

This was a taster for St Christopher's School pupils and something we are looking to involve ourselves in more as it was an excellent opportunity and pupils really enjoyed themselves...watch this space!

Spring 2017 St Christopher's School ,over the Winter holidays, installed a fantastic new playground surface for the new term. It is an updated astro-turf surface that is a fantastic resource for on-site PE sessions aswell as a brilliant surface for general play during break and lunch.
