We’re so proud of the Y4 footballers who represented our school for the first time recently. As well as coming away with a very impressive 3-3 draw against a local school playing their 5th game together, they represented our school with pride, humility, confidence and resilience. Most of all, they were genuinely happy to be playing alongside each other.
For some of our children, it was their first ever game of competitive football – although you’d never have known! For others, who might play a lot outside of school, it was their first taste of representing our school. For all of our children who played, we’re incredibly proud of how you represented our school; you were respectful, supportive, humble and giving it your all!
Here’s what a few of the team had to say afterwards:
‘Playing in the game was the best thing I’ve ever done. We had a lot of fun. It wasn’t about winning it was about having fun and doing your best!’ Korewa, Y4
‘The game was really fun and really positive. Even though we didn’t win, it was still great to play and compete against another school!’ Grayson, Y4
‘It was fun. Everyone on the team was helping each other and motivating each other to do their best and enjoy it!’ Rudi, Y4
Bring on the next game!
We’d also like to give a massive thanks to Mr O’Loughlin who has been instrumental in making this happen. We’re all super grateful for the time and effort you’ve put in to this so far!
