STEWARDS Academy celebrated the successes of its top sporting students at the annual Sports Presentation Evening. 65 students who had worked hard across the year, without fear of failure and who had demonstrated a thirst for excellence were invited to receive a trophy and personalised tracksuit top in honour of their hard work and commitment.
In the lead up to the evening all prize winners are invited to participate in an activities evening where they encounter a different experience that develops teambuilding and resilience as they overcome a variety of obstacles. It also involves a lot of mud!
Simon Preece, Deputy Headteacher and event coordinator, said: “As teachers we spend most of our time looking to the future and thinking about the next event and sometimes forget to enjoy the present. This evening gives us an opportunity to stop and reflect, an opportunity to celebrate the contribution these pupils have made to the PE department and to the school.
It is these pupils’ commitment and determination that inspire us as teachers to work harder and provide them with more opportunities to show their full potential.”
