100 minutes of football playing time: that is how long the Year 6 boys were on their feet playing football. They were against a variety of school teams in an event organised by Coleridge College, who we would like to say thank you to for their invitation.
By the end of the tournament the boys of Year 6 were tired and some were disappointed for not placing in the tournament; while others were exhilarated with their own personal performances, having scored a number of goals throughout.
The team at all times showed great teamwork and were always positive with each other. They worked hard and with the help of the football coach, Mr Wilson and Mr Payne, the students tried a variety of different playing positions and captaincy roles. These games after all are about personal development, teamwork and leadership. While the skills of football itself are important, they do not translate to the larger social environment as much as the former attributes, which is why we try to focus so much on the T-REDS values (Teamwork, Respect, Enjoyment, Discipline, Sportsmanship).
The Year 6 boys should be pleased with their efforts and the positive mind-set that they held on to at all time. They look forward to their second football tournament in the summer term.
