Superb running from our Ethelbert runners today at the first Kent College cross country event of the season!
Congratulations to our Sports Award winners 2023. It has been a fantastic year and we have been amazed by everyone’s sporting talent. A big thank you to Mr Mullender for his excellent coaching and Mrs Bell for driving to so many events.
Emma Brown, the captain of the England Women’s Deaf Football Team visited the school to share her sporting journey. The children were excited to hear that Miss Brown will be joining us in September as our new Sports and Fitness Coach.
On Tuesday, Mr Mullender and Mrs Bell took 9 Year 4 children to the Kent District Cricket Finals at Upchurch Cricket Club. Having won through from the local heats, they were up against very stiff competition. Despite this, they played superbly. In the play off rounds they came top, meaning that they finished 7th in the whole of Kent. We are very proud of them!
A selection of year 5/6 children got to participate in the East Kent Coastal Sports Partnership cricket tournament. After a very competitive group stage the team progressed through to the Semi Finals, where they came too in the group. We played the brilliant Whitstable Endowed team in the semi finals, who progressed to the final.
Our last match of the day was a 3rd and 4th place play off and we are proud to say we came 3rd!
Some of our Year 5 and 6 children were invited to attend Kent Cricket's Big Schools Day Out at the Kent County Cricket ground in Canterbury today.
After arriving in a storm, the rain quickly passed and the children were lucky enough to be able to watch Day 2 of Kent Vs Surrey in the county championship. The children also tookpart in a variety of activities, which included an assault course and a rapid fire cricket game. They experience how visually impaired children and adults can participate in cricket and how it is an inclusive sport, as well as having the opportunity to test how fast they could throw a ball.
During the course of the day the children collected rubbish, which was weighed before we left. Our children collected 19kg of rubbish throughout the day, the highest amount collected by all of the schools. The behaviour of our children was excellent and we hope they enjoyed the day. A big thank you to Mr Mullender and Mrs Bell for making this trip possible.
⚽️🎉 Congratulations to Jack, Charlie, Theo, Kit and Lenny in Year 4 who had an exciting day being mascots for the Kent United Team who played in the final of the National Fustal Series and won! The final was broadcast live and held at St George’s Park, England training ground. The boys attend the Youth Fustal Academy and definitely brought luck to the team. Congratulations to the team and Jack’s dad who is the manager and head coach ⚽️
What an amazing sports day we have all enjoyed. The children all showed great team spirit and resilience in everything they did. We are extremely proud of how they participated in races, cheered each other on and demonstrated great sportsmanship. Well done to our joint winners Athelstan and Egbert.
The children celebrated on their return to school with an ice lolly.
On Wednesday we attended the Herne bay sports partnership netball tournament at St Edmunds school, and I am very pleased and proud to say we finished in 3rd place and collected bronze medals. We were the only small school to make it through to the semi finals in a highly competive and difficult tournament.
I couldn't be any prouder of this group of 7 for the effort, determination, hard work and willingness to adapt to each game situation.
Another successful morning at the Kent College Cross Country event! Our children were superb, showing great determination, resilience and team spirit! Well done to our Ethelbert Runners! Great to see so many Reception children participating!
