SEN Inclusion Football event at goals
On Wednesday, a group of 14 students had the opportunity to attend GOALS and participate in an SEN Inclusion Football event run by Plymouth School Sports Partnership. At this event, we play a round-robin style format which means all of the schools get to play each other. 5 points are awarded for a win, 3 points for a draw and 1 point for a loss. Although it is a competitive event, our focus is not just about winning – we celebrate the outstanding sportsmanship qualities of Respect, Teamwork and Determination.
The students from Stoke Damerel represented the school outstandingly showing great sportsmanship and teamwork.
They shook hands with all the other students from other schools and congratulated them on any goals they had scored. Even if they themselves had lost the match.
All staff who took the students on this trip were proud of the way they represented the college and are looking forward to taking them again on Wednesday 19th January 2022.
At the end of the event, the scores are tallied, and we announce our winners. It was incredibly close in the end with 2 teams tied on points for 1st place. In order to determine the overall winner, we had to go back and calculate the number of goals scored by each team and then we found our winner… Congratulations to Stoke Damerel ‘C’ team who took top spot having scored 4 more goals than our runners-up, Coombe Dean ‘A’ team.
