Commonwealth Games Extravaganza

In the Year of the Birmingham Commonwealth Games, the Angmering Cohort wanted to mirror this sporting festival by coming together to compete in a range of sporting disciplines.  40 children from across the school took part in a fun-filled day of festivities. Locality Teams came together, all once again representing their Commonwealth Nations. The flags of Trinidad and Tobago, Australia, New Zealand South Africa and Jamaica were fluttering above the meeting point and putting a smile on the faces of all whom attended.

EPJS Year 5 and 6 - Winners!

The morning provided the Year 5/6 teams an opportunity to take part in tag-rugby, netball and non-stop cricket - an Angmering Mile was planned as the finale, but the oppressive heat made that an unfair hurdle on the teams. The children performed amazingly well and won the majority of their fixtures capping off a brilliant sporting year.

EPJS Year 3 and 4 - Winners!

In the afternoon, it was the turn of the Years 3 and 4 children who competed in football, endball, and non-stop cricket. Once again, the decision was sensibly taken to not run the mile. Our lower-school children performed equally superbly and again ran out proud winners of the day.

Logan said, "During the Commonwealth Games, we were faced with many different challenges, such as: cricket, netball, tag-rugby. We won 7 out of 10 of our games and that is why we won the trophy."

Holly added, "During the Commonwealth Games, we faced many activities, I enjoyed all of them, even when I was off (I have an injury). Everyone did very well and that's what helped us bring back the Commonwealth Trophy."

Both East Preston teams were victorious in their individual events and brought home trophies to add to a growing collection.

Thanks to Mr Gwynn, Mr Jenner and their team of Sports Leaders, to our locality rivals and friends, to parents and school staff for transporting and finally to our brilliant children for upholding the sporting values that have underpinned our success this year.
