High 5 Netball
The 2016-2017 Saltash Primary Cluster High 5 Netball League took place over the winter months. Teams from Sir Robert Geffery’s (SRG), Landulph, St Stephens, Brunel, Bishop Cornish and Burraton Primary Schools competed. Each team played each other twice. Scores were very close, with SRG winning the league with 22 points and a draw for second place between Landulph and St Stephens with 21 points. SRG will now go forward to the Caradon Final and Cornwall School Games (CSG) Qualifier on March 30th. Many thanks to Ciera from saltash.net for umpiring.
TB Try Golf
Today a golf professional from St Mellion Golf Club came to our school to give us all the chance to try out our golfing skills. We took part in a range of activities to develop our accuracy skills. The activities were fun and engaging and demonstrated to us that anyone can take part in this sport.
Thanks to Jason from St Mellion Golf Club for helping us to develop our skills.
Caradon Sportshall Athletics CSG Qualifier January 11th 2017
This is such a great fun competition. Teams of 18 (9 boys and 9 girls) from each school compete in both track and field events in the sportshall at saltash.net. The Y3/4 competition saw 5 schools take part—SRG, Burraton, St Stephens, Bishop Cornish and Landulph . Eventual winners were Burraton who will represent ARENA at the Spring CSG in April. The Y5/6 competition was attended by Landulph, St Stephens, Burraton and Bishop Cornish. The scores were so close that there were joint winners – Bishop Cornish and St Stephens. As only one team can be selected for the finals, it was decided that the fairest way was to run another 4 x 1 relay between these schools – each team comprising 2 boys and 2 girls. At one point they were neck and neck but eventually Bishop Cornish pulled in front to win the race and be the qualifiers to represent ARENA at the Cornwall School Games. Many thanks to Tamar Trotters, saltash.net staff and leaders for helping with this event.

Three activities were on offer – badminton, tennis and tag rugby and the children rotated around two of them. New skills were learned and enjoyment was had by both children and sports leaders, who led the activities.
