On Tuesday 7th July, 30 GCSE PE students headed up to the country’s biggest and best county – Yorkshire – to take part in Rock Climbing and Orienteering assessments to help support their GCSE PE practical grades. A great time was had by all, despite the weather’s attempts to dampen our spirits and a fantastic set of results were achieved. Indeed 97% of students will use either Rock Climbing or Orienteering as one of their top 4 highest scoring activities for their GCSE and 53% of students that came on the trip will use both! This trip has certainly proven to be very beneficial, for the second year in a row, both from an academic perspective, a social perspective and an enrichment point of view.
On Sunday 10th May, 13 of St. Joan of Arc’s keenest Basketballers headed to the O2 Arena London for the showpiece event in British Basketball. We arrived at The O2 at 13:30 ahead of the charity match, played in aid of raising money for allowing disadvantaged children to access sport. The match was contested by two teams made up of celebrities, including Akinfenwa – as you can imagine, this went down well with the students. The main event was the final between the London Lions and the Newcastle Eagles – The Eagles eventually running out 96-84 winners over the home town team to complete a historic quadruple and make BBL history. It was a long, but very enjoyable day and it is hoped that the department will run more trips like this to inspire our own students to take part in Basketball, as well as other sports.
