Inclusion Football Festival 2018
On 22nd of June, 21 pupils from Year 4, 5 and 6 competed in a World Cup style football festival. Along with a team from Ab Kettleby Primary School taking on the role of Mexico, we entered three teams to battle for our very own World Cup trophy. Our school teams took on the role of Australia, Croatia and Spain.
To support the running of the competition, Andrew Hines and Ethan Squires took on the role of officiating all of the matches fairly and to a very high standard. What great role models! Special mention to Toby Cullen for taking on the role of manager of Croatia and leading them to victory. All the children involved were exceptional, showing great team work along the way.
