Our boys football team recently took part in the Penwith Primary Schools Cup held at Mounts Bay Academy.
The team played four league games, winning three and narrowly losing one. With these results they found themselves up against St Mary School, Penzance in the final.
In a tight game, a goal from Logan C was enough to see the boys over-the-line and claim the trophy.
There were some great performances throughout the competition and the boys bonded well as a team.
Team: Harvey P, Thomas T, Tom W, Ry J, Gabriel C, Bobby Y, Logan C, Bradley H, George Y and Otis H.
Well done boys!
On Wednesday 27th, nine boys made the long journey to Tintagel to play our county cup semi-final match.
With our opponents winning their two previous rounds 9 - 3 and 4 - 2, the boys were expecting a tough match. However, after quickly going two - nil up, it became apparent we were in for an easier game than we thought.
At half time the score was 4 - 0 with Riley (Y4) completing a hat-trick. The second half continued in the same vein, with our boys scoring four more goals to make the final score 8 - 0. What a great team performance!
They will now face Mousehole School in the final on Friday 26th April.
Team: Thomas T, Rhys C, Logan C, Bradley H, George Y, Gabriel C, Riley BC, Tom W and Otis H
On Thursday 7th, fourteen boys from years 4, 5 and 6 took part in a number of games against other local schools at Mounts Bay Academy.
The 'Blue' team of Bradley H, Rhys C, Logan C, George Y, Riley BC, Gabriel C and Cameron S won all their games, including 8 - 0 and 4 - 0 victories.
The 'Red' team of Dylan H, Harvey P, Bobby Y, Thomas T, Tom W, Ry J and xxx also played three games winning two and narrowly losing the other.
This was the last of the PPE football festivals hosted by Mounts Bay. Later this term, both teams will return to take part in the PPE Cup tournament.
After a weather delay of one week, the final cross country league meeting took place at Cape School on Monday 11th. A depleted team consisting of nine runners: Florence G, Macy H, Otis H, Posie P, Emily O, Orla H, Dyan H, Riley BC and Hugh W took part on a windy course.
Winning his fourth race of the year for a clean sweep was year six pupil - Otis H. Throughout the season he has dominated every race collecting four gold medals along the way. Hopefully, he can continue his fine form and do well in the county championships at the end of the month.
Other notable performances came from Orla H (Y5) 5th place; Dylan H (Y4) 6th and Hugh W (9th)
Well done to all runners who have participated this year showing great perseverance and resilience
Last Thursday, a squad of nine boys participated in the first of three Penwith Schools Football festivals held at Mounts Bay Academy. The boys played three games, winning two comfortably and narrowly losing one game.
In the first game we took on Gulval. Dominating possession, the boys initially found it tough to find the back of the net. However, with perseverance and good team spirit, they managed to score two goals in the second half to win 2 - 0.
In the second game against Pensans, the team found themselves 3 - 0 down at half time. However, with some re-organisation they showed great spirit to make the score 3 - 3. Unfortunately, Pensans scored with the final kick of the game to claim a 4 - 3 win.
In their final game against St Mary's, the boys claimed a brilliant 5 - 0 win. In this game they played some brilliant football often stringing together several passes which resulted in some great goals.
Team: Logan Curnow, Otis Harper, Bradley Harvey, Rhys Cutting, Tom Wheatley, Ry Johnson, Cameron Sweeny, Harvey Parsons and Gabriel Clarke
Last Thursday, 14 boys from years 4, 5 and 6 travelled with Mr Kevern and Mr Bowman to Mounts Bay Academy to take part in the second PPE football festival of the year.
Split into two teams (reds and blues) each team played three 10-minute matches.
The red team won two games and narrowly lost one, while the blue team won two games and drew one game.
A great team-spirit was evident throughout the festival with the goals shared evenly around.
Red Team: Rhys C, George Y, Logan C, Otis H, Tom W, Gabriel C and Cameron S.
Blue Team: Bradley H, Harvey P, Thomas T, Ry J, Bobby Y, Riley B-C and Hugh W.
After receiving a bye in round one, our year six football team travelled to play Shortlanesend School, near Truro in the second round on Monday 21st. Playing on a severely sloping pitch, the boys acquitted themselves well adapting their game to suit. With midfield maestro - Logan - pumping long balls up to striker - George, they were able to bypass the opposition midfield effectively and dominate possession for much of the game. After a goal-less first half, it was Logan who broke the deadlock with a fine shot from distance. In goal, Rhys played his part making a great reflex save when called upon.
The team now progress into the semi-finals which will be played after the February half-term.
Cornish Pirates Festival
As a culmination of 6 weeks of coaching with the Cornish Pirates, 15 pupils from year 6 took part in a festival organised by the Pirates Community Engagement Officer, Sam Teasdale.
Altogether, the children played 6 games, winning 5 and losing only once - a great achievement!
Great teamwork and especially fantastic sportsmanship was shown by all the children.
Piran G said; "I had a brilliant time. I really like rugby!"
Well done to all the players.

Table Tennis match V Bosvigo School
On Friday 21st April, our A + B teams played a return fixture against Bosvigo School from Truro at home.
The 'A' team won their match 5 - 4, while the 'B' team unluckily lost 9 - 0. Despite this scoreline, every player won at least one 'end' in their best of 3 match. The standard of play was superb across all matches with several members of staff and parents watching on in awe.
A BIG thank you to Mr David May and Mrs Carew for coaching our team and for acting as umpires.
Players: Mari W, George B, Louie S, Finch W, Alina H and Ruby G

As County Champions, the Y6 boys Kwik Cricket team recently embarked on the long journey to Clifton College, Bristol to take part in the South West Regional Cricket finals.
After a long journey, the boys played superbly to win all 3 group matches against Somerset, Wiltshire and Berkshire.
In the semi-final they came up against Hampshire who had a team full of county players.
They again played with great determination but ultimately lost out on a place in the final by just a few runs.
Despite their obvious disappointment on missing out on a place in the final, the boys can be very proud of their achievements. Coincidentally, Hampshire went on to win the final.
In three years together as a team they have played over 25 matches, losing only twice!
A big thank you to all the parents who came and supported the boys in Bristol and to Mr Ken Hall (driver) and Mr Basil Stephens (scorer)
