Today was a very important day in the school callendar. All that skipping on the yard , practicing with friends and at home by ourselves was measured in this mornings Skipping Challenge: Bronze Award.
Before the day got going however we had another Sports Star Demo. from one of the best U13 kickboxers in the country and St. Clare’s student, Jade. After telling everyone where she trains , how long she trains for and how much she enjoys her sport She showed everyone some simple punching and more complicated high kicks!!!
Skipping Challenge Bronze Award
Children from 2nd to 5th were assessed by skipping experts ( and skipping tutors) Hulya Dianne (6th) as well as Charlie (4th). Mr Harte kept the records and was the referee of last resort. The standard was extremely high and lots of boys and girls narrowly missed out on completing all the tasks required.
