It's Platinum for
The children and staff are delighted to have achieved the Aura Sports Platinum Award for School Sport for the 2017/18 academic year. We have also been awarded a Special Achievement Award for contribution to School Sport. Da iawn to all of the children who attended extra-curricular sports sessions and who ran the daily mile. Also, a big thank you to our fabulous teachers for your hard work!
At Southdown CP, we celebrate the importance of sport and physical activity through our Southdown School Sport Week. We invite a wide variety of local sports clubs to work with our children during the Summer Term. Some of the exciting activities included Golf, Squash, Martial Arts and Hockey.
As part of Sport's Week, We were lucky enough to welcome Welsh Commonwealth Games Boxer Billy Jones into School. Billy represented Team Wales at the Commonwealth Games on the Gold Coast in Australia.
Billy delivered two boxing sessions for the children in Year 3, with every child developing new skills! Billy also took the time to meet all of the children in KS2, signing autographs and taking photos. Even Miss Owen Jones and Mr Jones wanted a picture!
The 2019 Southdown School Sports Week will be our third annual event.
National Football Team!
During the 2018 Southdown School Sports Week, the children were given the opportunity to watch the Wales National Football Team train at the Racecourse Stadium. The children were inspired watching the likes of Aaron Ramsay, Ashley Williams, Joe Ledley and Ryan Hedges show of their skills! The children and staff had a fantastic day and even managed to meet some of the players.
