We are delighted to announce that Alexandra Primary School has achieved the School Games Gold Mark Award for the 2018/19 academic year. We aspired to compete in teams. We performed to the best of our ability and we succeeded!
The School Games Mark is a Government led award scheme launched in 2012. It is facilitated by the Youth Sport Trust to reward schools for their commitment to the development of competition across their school and into the community, and we are delighted to have been recognised for our success. We have developed further Sports provision for our children and entered many competitions to show an application of the skills in a competitive environment. We are driven by our school values such as respect, resilience and reliability and we understand that to achieve sporting excellence takes practise.
Our sporting achievements last year included:
- Our APS Netball team went through to the Hounslow Borough Finals.
- We reached the quarter finals at the Cricket tournament.
- We have a girls football team.
- We have a mixed Hi-Five netball team.
- We organised and held the school's annual Sports Day at a big venue.
- We have achieved the Gold Quality Mark for the third Year running.
With a total of over 175 young people competing in local inter-school competitions this year, we are extremely proud of our pupils for their dedication to all aspects of school sport, including those young volunteers, leaders and officials who made our competitions possible.
As part of our application, we were asked to fulfil criteria in the areas of participation, competition, workforce and clubs, and we are pleased that the hard work of everyone at our school has been rewarded this year.
A special thanks to:
All the children, parents and the staff of Alexandra Primary for all their commitment and support. We have worked together as a team to achieve this accreditation and we look forward to applying once again in 2020!
