DODGING THE BALL!
Richmond School recently hosted a Year 5 and 6 Dodgeball competition for local primary schools. The event was led by Year 10 Sports Leaders who did extremely well. They had a tough role as they had to officiate the fast-paced, high-energy games ensuring that they gave all pupils a fun, fair and competitive game. They received many compliments from the visiting staff for the kindness they showed to all pupils, as well as their knowledge and application of the rules.
The following schools participated:
– Richmond St Mary’s
– Michael Syddall
– Trinity Academy Middleton Tyas
– Richmond Methodist School
– Sacred Heart
Eleven teams took part and they were placed into two groups, playing everyone in their group and then the top two teams from each group qualified to play in a semi- final. Richmond Methodist School and Trinity Academy Middleton Tyas played against each other in one semi-final and Sacred Heart and a second Richmond Methodist team played against each other in the second semi-final. This led to Richmond Methodist playing against Trinity Academy Middleton Tyas in a very closely fought final. After six sets in the final, the teams were drawing so the decision was made to award joint first place to both schools. Congratulations to all schools that entered.
