On Wednesday of this week, Trafalgar School’s students attended the School Sports Partnership Awards which were held at Portsmouth College. Also in attendance were students from other local secondary schools who were just as excited to pick up an award in recognition of their achievements .
We are very pleased and proud to announce that Trafalgar School’s students picked up a number of awards on the evening for their athletic / sporting achievements. Well done to all of the students involved and a special congratulations to those that received awards – see below.
Sport Leader of the Year: Jodesha Antoine – Jodesha has been a fantastic support to the PE department this year, attending year 7 fixtures to help coach and manage the teams. She is an asset to the school and a great role model for her peers.
Outstanding Achievement in Sport: Harvey Welham – Harvey leads by example when he captains the school football team, always showing his outstanding understanding and ability. Not only does he stand out by far, but he is extremely supportive of the other students. His work ethic of attending training whilst being committed to Portsmouth Football Club is excellent, which encourages his peers to also stay motivated to train hard.
Young School Official of the Year: Jack Quinnell – Jack has shown excellent commitment to Trafalgar School by officiating KS3 football matches on a regular basis. He has shown an excellent knowledge of the game, commanding respect from the players and showing growing confidence.
Extra Curricular Award: Ipeleng Kgomo has shown an outstanding commitment to extra-curricular clubs throughout the year, attending numerous clubs regularly. She has represented the school in a number of fixtures and clubs, including netball, basketball, football, rounders, athletics, cricket, rugby, table tennis and dance. Her statistics are higher than any other KS3 student at attending clubs showing her huge commitment to sport at Trafalgar.
School Sports Team Performance of the Year: Year 8 Netball team – The year 8 netball team have done extraordinarily well when competing against local schools, placing first in both the winter and spring area tournaments. Considering only one student in the team plays outside of school shows how their raw talent, combined with outstanding team work skills and hard work can set them apart from the rest. Well done girls!
Most Improved Individual Player of the Year: Aiden Jannaway – At the beginning of the year Aiden wasn’t involved in any sports clubs after school. However, he found confidence to begin attending the extra-curricular trampolining club, which has spurred him on to make huge improvements in this sport. Initially, Aiden was very nervous of the trampoline, however, his increased skill and confidence has enabled him to move onto skills such as swivel hips.
Most Improved Team of the Year: Year 7 Girls football team – These girls have shown outstanding commitment to improving their skills in football, attending as a team every single week during the winter season to training. At the beginning of the year, none of the girls played for a team outside of school, a number of the players now do, helping them improve massively. They have played a large number of games against some fantastic sides, and never lost their spirit and resilience. I really believe these students deserve most improved as they have learnt something and got better after every game they have played.
