Virtual Sports Week
Falmouth School did not want to let the Covid-19 pandemic prevent our annual, much loved and anticipated sports day going ahead, therefore this year a new virtual challenge was set where students, parents and staff of Falmouth School were challenged with completing 8 different activities to win points for their houses. Every participant who completed a challenge won 10 points for their house and anyone who completed all 8 challenges won a further 50 bonus points. Individual winners of each challenge within each year group then won a very impressive 100 bonus points for their house.
Challenges included something inspiring, ‘going the distance’ on a run or cycle, press ups, planking, balance, coordination, keepy uppies and even the bottle flip challenge! There were some fantastic individual feats too and you can see the results by clicking here. The tutor winners were 7T1, 8T1, 9B1 and 10T1, but the one everyone was waiting for saw Trelawney crowned as champions!
Head of PE Mrs Benney said “I am extremely proud of how the students, staff and even some of the parents have come together to complete these challenges, with some competitors devoting hours of practice to be successful and win the bonus 100 points for their houses. Every single entry earnt points, therefore the emphasis was on team work. In most cases the tutor groups with the most entries won, over the tutor group with only 1 or 2 entries that were impressive.”
“I would like to thank and congratulation every single person who entered a challenge and contributed to their house, however I would like to make an extra-special congratulations to Amelia-Hayden Rowlands and Emily Carter in year 9 who choose to ‘inspire me’ through walking 10 miles to raise money as part of globals ‘make some noise’ campaign to raise vital funds for people within the local area who have most been effected by coronavirus. They have raised over £280 with donations continuing to come in which is absolutely fantastic. Girls you certainly inspired me, you should be really proud of yourselves. I hope everyone who took part enjoyed the challenge” she added.
