Soccer Aid 2023! School Site don their football shirts as entire site compete in Marathon Charity Football Match
On Friday the 9th June, everyone at the school site joined together to participate in our marathon football match to raise funds for Soccer Aid. Students (and staff!) were encouraged to wear their favourite football shirts with representatives from all classes participating.
It was a great spectacle with our wheelchair users kicking off the match, and although it was in aid of charity, it was highly competitive with a few tackles that made some of us wince on more than one occasion!
As other classes were introduced, the goals kept on flowing, and we were all very impressed with the level of football on show. Of particular note was the part of the match when we had three classes on the pitch which equated to almost 40 students, but they all did incredibly well, and it was expertly refereed by Lou!
It was a fantastic day, and in the end, a very close match with the blues eventually winning by a single solitary goal! Well done to everyone involved!
During the half-time break, we held three penalty shoot-outs; one for our students in wheelchairs, one for primary and one for Key Stage 3.
The goalies for the penalty shoot-outs were:
- Ethan and Seren
- Katie T
- Martin W
Once again it was very competitive and we witnessed some truly fantastic penalties (The England National team could learn a few things from our students!). Liv and Lou were on hand to keep score. This was very important as the winners were to be awarded with a brand new football each!
And the winners were:
Congratulations to everyone who took part, it really was a fantastic whole school event, well done!
