  • Year 7 & 8 Sports Challenges

    Published 13/10/20

    This half term, the PE department have hosted the Year 7 & 8 Challenges. As this year's summer sports day was cancelled, we decided to run an athletics-themed 'sports day' event, with each form taking part in a range of tasks. The events – including group and individual challenges – were focused around power, speed, endurance and co-ordination. All girls demonstrated enthusiasm, perseverance and an abundance of competitiveness with the aim of finishing as the number one form. A huge well done to all girls in year 7 & 8 but particularly to 7F and 8S who managed to come out on top, a great sign of things to come in future sports days for Fleet and St Bride

The assembly introduced us to three Black individuals who have made significant contributions to British history and society: Olive Morris; John Boyega; and Anne-Marie Imafidon. However, we were also challenged to think about the origins of Black History Month, both in the US and the UK, and to consider the historic neglect of Black histories that means that this month of focus is necessary.
