Kirklees Inter-school Tournament at Rawthorpe Library

Yep, 2019 has only just begun and its time for more Inter-School Tournaments, with today's being the first of 3 in 10 days!!!

Today's games marathon wasn't held in a school, but at Rawthorpe Library in Kirklees. All part of our efforts not only to bring games to more communities and schools, but also to promote the libraries to schools, and demonstrate another good use for these centres of the community.

Greenfield Primary 7th Inter-School Tournament Needs BIGGER Venue!

Greenfield Primary’s 7th Inter-School Games Tournament found a new location!

With so many Barnsley Schools wanting to take part we found ourselves in need of a bigger venue. An obvious choice was Kirkbalk Academy who very kindly agreed to act as host for the day. Not only did they provide a fantastic venue, we were also supported by 6 of their students and they made amazing mentors, so special thanks goes to: Dylan Atkinson, Lewis Graham, Emily Davey, Lewis Burrell, Cassie Wilson and Georgie-Leigh Marsden.

It was a fantastic day...

New Trophies!

Thought you might like to have a peek at these beauties!

Every time we do an inter-school tournament, which is pretty often these days, at least one of each of these trophies is handed out. And that's on top of all the certificates and any other prizes that may be up for grabs!

The shiny, reflective one goes to the student with the highest individual score on the day. We present it, the school and their mates can be impressed by it, and they can take it home to wow their family and friends permanently.

Children's University Tournaments Arrive!

As I type we have just completed the first of three games tournament's as part of our on-going Games compendium project with Sheffield Children's University... and it was brilliant!

Today's event concentrated on Key Stage 2 pupils (7 - 11yr olds) from 10 schools across Sheffield, and in the coming weeks we have events for Key Stage 1 (5 - 7 yr olds) and Key Stage 3 (11 - 14 yr olds) pupils too!
