The Christ's College Festival of Sport
Before the Easter break, for a period of four weeks after lockdown when students returned to College for face-to-face teaching again. Students competed in The Christ's College Festival Of Sport.
This was an opportunity for all our students to experience a variety of sports and compete at different games and activities including; football, handball, netball, softball, rugby and American football. The team names of Ennis-Hill (Jessica Ennis-Hill), Houghton (Steph Houghton), Quek (Sam Quek) and Taylor (Katie Taylor) were chosen in order to raise awareness of the increasing popularity and successes within female sport. Each class competed in their own league along with a separate competition for their year group and finally a third competition where all points across the whole school were added together for an overall Festival Of Sport winner. The results for these are listed below:
YEAR 7 WINNERS Houghton
YEAR 8 WINNERS Taylor
YEAR 9 WINNERS Ennis Hill
YEAR 10 WINNERS Taylor
YEAR 11 WINNERS Quek
