Sports Ambassadors present awards for the school games values!

Sport @ Gastrells

Today we had a special assembly where our Sports Ambassadors presented special certificates for children in their class who had demonstrated the school games values during P.E.
The school games values are a series of attributes which we encourage at Gastrells they include; determination, self-belief, team work, passion, honesty and respect.

Some of the reasons behind the certificates were the following;

Isabelle – was a very friendly supportive and well organised team captain.
Evie – She is very encouraging and helpful with others in sport.
Max – Good sportsmanship as he didn’t mind when he got out during dodge ball and enjoyed watching and supporting others.
