St Theresa’s Events
Year 1 Football Festival
Well done to all the year 1 children who got to represent St Theresa’s at the Barnet Football Festival. The boys all showed excellent skill, teamwork and sportsmanship throughout the day. The team managed to play some excellent football and won 4 of their 6 matches. Well done!
Mini Boccia 9th September
Well done to all those children who participated in the Mini Boccia Festival today at Burnt Oak Leisure Centre. St Theresa’s was represented from children in a variety of year groups and showed some fantastic sportsmanship and skill throughout the day. The event was an inclusive one so there were no winners or losers but all the children had a great time and were great ambassadors for the school.
Cross Country Meet 1 17th September
St Theresa’s were represented by members of years 4,5 and 6 at the first cross country meet of the year at Copthall Playing Fields. The children were selected after impressing in their class races this week and showed exactly why they had been selected to take part in races involving well over 20 children in each heat. The children all showed great stamina and technique in their long distance running, a special mention must go to Samuel who – despite falling over earlier in the race- came third in his race.
Year 5 and 6 Tag Rugby 2nd November
Today saw St Theresa’s take on schools from around the borough in the Saracens Tag Rugby Tournament. Despite many of the children playing for the first time and being very nervous the children really performed valiantly against a lot more experienced opposition. Despite losing the first two games, the children showed great determination and character to draw and win their last two games of the group. Although it was not enough to progress into the knockout staged of the competition, the team came away from the tournament with pride and confidence. Well done!
Primary Boccia 15th January 2017
The children had a fantastic day today at Burnt Oak Leisure Centre taking part in the inclusive Primary Boccia festival. It was a wonderful opportunity for the children to take part in a new sport and learn new skills and work with different people from other schools. The children showed impeccable behaviour throughout the day.
Year 6 Football 24th January 2018
The year 5 and 6 football team had a fantastic day and put in a phenomenal performance at the Years 6 Football Tournament North Regionals against schools made up completely of year 6 students. The team came into the day brimming with self-confidence and this really showed when they won the first three games without conceding a goal and playing with real flair. After knowing that they were through to the knockout stages regardless of the results, the team drew their last game in a fairly uneventful game. They then faced a very tough Summerside team in the semi-final where they were incredibly lucky to lose 1 nil to a very late goal, on another day the team could have seen themselves through into the final. However the boys were extremely upbeat in knowing that they had qualified for the finals tournament, which will be a much tougher proposition. Beast of luck boys!
Year 5 and 6 Girls Football Tournament. 31st January
The St Theresa’s Girls Football Team had a wonderful day out at the Barnet Tournament today and represented the school extremely well. Although the girls lost their opening two games they showed bundles of charisma and character to draw their penultimate game. The loudest cheer of the day was met after Flavia from year 5 scored a late equaliser. It was absolutely fantastic to see the girls continue to enjoy the season. They have shown huge improvements in their abilities and in their confidence. Well done girls!
Rugby League Tuesday 6th February 2018
On a bitterly cold day where the Allianz Stadium pitch was sprinkled with snow, the year 5 and 6 Rugby team put in a very dedicated and determined display in some truly awful weather conditions. Being led by Arturo and Jacques, the team showed some great tactical awareness against some very physical sides. Despite not making it through to the knock out stages of the competition, numerous members of the team were praised by members of staff organising the day. Well done to all who represented the school!
Year 6 football final 7th February 2018
After placing 3rd in the regional tournament weeks previously, the St Theresa’s Boys football team took their place in the Year 6 district finals. Over 45 schools had entered the tournament originally, there were only 15 left and the team knew they were going to be in for a tough day. Being the only school that were made up predominantly of year 5 students the team found it difficult to match their opposition’s physicality. However despite this disadvantage, the team found themselves in front in each of their four group games and managed to hold onto a win and a draw. Sadly this meant that the team were knocked out on the group staged but could be hugely proud of their achievement. The children came away knowing that with the year 5 tournament two weeks away that they have lot to build on for the future and will be back next year!
Year 5 Football Tournament 21st February 2018
After reaching the finals of the year 6 tournament, the St Theresa’s football squad came to the year 5 tournament brimming with confidence. With such high demand to take part in the tournament it was wonderful for the school to enter two teams. St Theresa’s Whites and Pinks were put into separate groups and cheered each other on brilliantly throughout the day. The pink team showed some great team spirit and communication throughout their group and came away from their group with one point from four games in a very difficult group. Madan did a terrific job in goal for the pink team and made a variety of excellent saves whilst Oscar showed great leadership skills as captain. The St Theresa’s White Team played with some incredible flair and skill throughout their group stages winning their group with three wins and one lost, scoring 16 along the way. Aidan helped himself to 9 goals throughout the competition as finished the day as the tournament’s top goal scorer. After winning their group and attracted many compliments from other schools managers, the boys were incredibly unlucky to lose in the semi-final. However they picked themselves up in the 3rd and 4th place play off – winning on penalties thanks to some amazing saves from Daniel before Samuel stepped up calmly to send his penalty into the bottom corner. The boys went home with their 3rd place medals knowing that they did incredibly well and hoping to go further next year in the year 6 tournament. Well done to both teams.
Virtual challenges are sports challenges that all schools in Barnet take part in. They are called virtual as after each school undertakes the activity the scores are recorded and emailed to the School Sports Partnership. This allows lots of children to compete with each other virtually.
At St. Theresa’s, not only do we enter the chosen year group to the Barnet School Sports Virtual Challenge, we also hold an internal challenge in which all children in KS2 take part in a similar activity.
