YEAR 9 SPORTS LEADERS PRAISED FOR THEIR INVALUABLE SUPPORT AT RMS SPORTS DAY
What great feedback from Richmond Methodist Primary School about our wonderful Year 9 Sports Leaders who did a marvellous job helping at their Sports Day.
Joe Larder, Teacher at RMS said: “It was so lovely to have the support of the Richmond School Year 9 sports leaders. It was fantastic to see many former pupils who had once been taking part in our sports day who were now helping to run the day. The support of pupils from Richmond School during these events has been invaluable in the past and we are so pleased we were able to re-establish those links after the last few disruptive years. All of our staff members have commented on the professionalism and exemplary conduct of the leaders and have asked if they would be able to help again in the future; they were fantastic ambassadors for their school- thank you!”
Well done to: Ellie, Emily, Cara, Beth, Emma, Gracie, Ellen, Amelie, Maggie, Olivia and Daisy.
We were thrilled to hear from Ellie, in Year 9, who shared her experiences of the Sports Day with us:
“Myself and 10 other Year 9 Sports Leaders were lucky enough to go to Richmond Methodist School to help with their Years 3-6 Sports Day. We were welcomed and introduced to Ms Emmerson and Mr Larder. We each were given our own activity including: cricket ball throw, speed bounce, javelin, vortex throw, balance beam and many more fun events. Throughout the day, we could award points when we saw the younger ones using their own key values. Each student was assigned a house where they were competing to be the best, trying out each event to win a bronze, silver or gold. The environment there was great and we all really enjoyed the activities in the morning.
“In the afternoon, we helped set out and prepare for the running events. This is where we timed, awarded and cheered the children on. There was a last event called ‘The Super Six’ where the top boys and girls in each year competed to see their final placings: it really brought the day together and the atmosphere was incredible. At the end, we got a thank you ice lolly and awaited the awards.
“We all enjoyed the day so much and loved interacting with the children all day long. RMS was certainly pleased the day went so well as this was their first real sports day with their new headteacher and since Covid.
‘It was really enjoyable and there was a lot of great team spirit. We felt so welcomed by the teachers and pupils and would all love to go and do it again anytime!”
