On Tuesday 26th November we were invited to attend the A10 Active Dodgeball Festival at Haileybury Turnford Secondary School. Forres Primary School entered three teams into this festival consisting of 21 pupils.
The festival was organised into two pools of teams with each team playing one game against all the others in their pool, finishing with a one-off playoff game against the team who finished in the same position in the other pool.
All of our teams showed a great enthusiasm and really enjoyed the festival, competing in the right spirit and showed lots of determination and honesty in their play. The 'A' team finished in 5th place in their pool, winning their playoff game, the 'B' team finished in 6th place in their pool and also won their playoff game. The 'C' team were the most successful team, only losing one game in their pool matches and finishing 2nd, but unfortunately lost their playoff game.
Well done to all involved and a big thank you to A10 Active for organising the event and to Haileybury Turnford Secondary School for hosting.
On Wednesday 13th November, Forres Primary School competed in their second football/netball tournament of the year, hosted by John Warner Secondary School. We were able to take two football teams and two netball teams for this tournament with a total of 24 pupils participating.
Both the netball teams won one game each in the group stages of the tournament, but unfortunately neither progressed to the next stage of the competition. Well done to all the netball players for playing in the right spirit and trying their best.
The football 'B' team lost one game and drew the other in their group, which meant they did not qualify for the next round of the competition. The 'A' team fared slightly better by winning their group without losing a single game. Then in the semi-finals they unfortunately lost 2-1 after extra-time, however, they won the 3rd/4th Place Play-Off 3-0 to finish the tournament in 3rd place overall. Well done to all the football players for supporting one another and showing some excellent team play throughout the tournament.
Thank you to John Warner Secondary School for hosting and organising the tournament!
On Tuesday 5th November, we entered two football teams and two netball teams into the Inter-Primary Cup hosted at Haileybury Turnford School. The football 'A' team went through the entire tournament without losing or conceding a goal, but unfortunately a record of three wins and three draws wasn't enough to qualify them for the final. The football 'B' team also performed well, winning one game, drawing four and losing once.
In the netball, our 'A' team put in a very good performance, winning three games, drawing one and losing one, but unfortunately failed to qualify for the final. Our netball 'B' team showed great team spirit throughout drawing one and losing four games.
Well done to all the pupils that participated and thank you to A10 Active for organising the tournament and Haileybury Turnford for hosting.
