National Fitness Week

Last week during SMSC, all students learnt about the importance of Fitness and why having a healthy active lifestyle is so important. National Fitness Day was on Wednesday 23rd September 2020 and the day is a chance to highlight the role physical activity plays across the UK, helping us raise awareness of its importance in helping us lead healthier and active lifestyles. National Fitness Day is the most active day of the year and the day to celebrate the role that physical activity plays across the UK. It is a day when people of all ages, backgrounds and abilities come together to celebrate the fun of fitness. The day brings the nation together to remind us why it’s good to move, highlighting the role that physical activity plays in helping us lead healthier, happier lives both physically and mentally.

At Presdales we celebrated it over this whole week with a different year group each day joining the PE department and Presdales staff for a walk/jog/run at lunchtime on the field. It was great to see so many students and staff involved! A huge well done to those who joined us for some fitness and R1’s have been given to those who participated. During form time students also completed a form ‘Instagram’ page to promote National Fitness Day – please see the photo below for their fantastic quotes/inspiring pictures displayed in the Sports Hall.

Hockey

The U13 hockey team competed in the County Hockey Finals at Queenswood this evening. They qualified after winning all 4 of their group matches, and continued that good form in this tournament. Their first match was against Queenswood ‘A’ and the girls fought back from 0-2 down to draw 2-2. In their next matches against RMS and Dame Alice Owen, they won 2-0 and 4-0 respectively. Unfortunately, they didn’t reach the final as Queenswood scored 2 more goals, but the girls should be very proud of their achievements. They’ve played 7 County matches, won 6 and drew 1. They’ve scored over 25 goals and conceded only 4. This is a young team of mostly Y7s playing against Y8s so they will be even stronger next season! Well done girls!!

Netball

The Year 10 Netball Team are COUNTY CHAMPIONS!
Last week they played in the final of the Schools Netball County Competition having won all their games so far this season. They won 37-25 against a very good Broxbourne team and played the most outstanding game of netball I’ve seen them play in 4 years! They worked so hard for each other and showed exceptional levels of performance and resilience. So, so proud of you all! Huge congratulations and well done girls!
