25 enthusiastic years 5 and 6’s from surrounding primary schools filled King Edward’s sports hall on Tuesday night, ready to play in the October 2014 Football Festival. Four brightly coloured teams took to the pitch in an attempt to make their schools proud, with an overwhelming atmosphere and support from fellow team members, families and teachers on the side-lines. All teams from Castlechurch, St Lawrence and Woodseaves played extremely well and the final results were very close. St Lawrence managed to pull just ahead of the other 3 teams to be named the winners of the October 2014 Football Festival, of which parents, teachers and students alike were extremely proud. The standard of football at the event was as high as ever and hopefully the schools will return to the festival for years to come to claim their own victory!
The present sports leaders and referees that participated in helping the event to run smoothly worked very well together and Mrs Gibbs believes the festival “ran the best yet under the unfortunate weather conditions” (as the festival had to be moved inside). The leaders helped throughout the festival to instil enthusiasm into the players and encourage the great performances from the younger children. The help from King Edward’s students was invaluable and allowed the festival to take place extremely efficiently.
