Martial Arts

On Wednesday 7th December Mrs Wells and Mrs osbourn took 8 pupils to Treviglas to compete in a Martial Arts Festival. The event was run by PE teacher, Sean Wells alongside Ed Byrne (Byrne Black Belt Academy). Each pupil competed using a soft pad and soft stick to contact the opponent. Head guards were worn and an instructor was referee – there were strict rules for each 1 minute bout. Points were scored for each hit and added to the team total. We came in 5th place overall. Our 8 pupils Reece Sedgwick, Cameron Hill, Izzy Farnan, Leanna Beare, Jack Hindley, Polly Hocking, Daniel Hinton and Ella Armshaw. The whole team were amazing and showed a huge amount of energy and commitment.
