Competitive Sports

PE and Competetive Sport

At Horn Park, we believe that P.E. and school sport contribute to the holistic development of our children and through participation, our children build and learn more about our key values such as respect, unity, co-operation and kindness for themselves and others.

Competitions: 

At Horn Park we enter as many sporting competitions as possible. We feel this is a fantastic opportunity for children to participate and compete against other schools from around the borough.

This half term we have already competed in the Greenwich Borough quick sticks hockey competition finishing an impressive 5th out of 14 schools. 

We have many more exciting competitions to look forward to throughout the year including; indoor athletics, football, basketball, tag rugby, netball, cricket and many more multisport events. 

 

Events:

Inspired through sport

In July 2016 we were lucky enough to be visited by Daryl Neita. Daryll visited us just days before heading off to compete in the Rio Olympics. This was a fantastic opportunity for the children and staff at Horn Park to meet an Olympian.

We all pulled together and managed to raise a staggering £948.56; with half the donations going towards inspired through sport and the rest of the proceeds going towards brand new sports equipment for school. We all supported Daryl throughout the Olympics and were proud to watch her bring back a Bronze medal in the women’s 4x100m relay team. 

Heart4More Foundation

In 2015 children took part in workshops run by Heart4More Foundation and St Johns Ambulance. The Heart4More Foundation, founded in February 2014, is an organisation which works with football’s governing bodies, professional clubs, players, fans and communities to raise awareness of cardiac related issues within the game.

Tobi Alabi; an ex-professional football player who suffered from a cardiac arrest whilst playing for Milwall visited the school and lead an inspirational assembly on courage and over-coming barriers. This was a great day for all, and children went home enthusiastically knowing they now have the potential skills and knowledge to save a life!
