Swimming Final

Thursday 23rd March 2017

Following the fabulous Swimming Gala held earlier this month, two of our Year 6 girls were chosen to represent the Shelfield Cluster because they qualified with some the fastest times overall.  Along with children from Holy Trinity, St John’s, Blue Coat and Hydesville schools they work as a team to compete against children from both the Streetly and Willenhall Clusters.

Abbie and Emma went to Walsall Gala Baths yesterday afternoon and took part in two of the relay races and then their own individual races.  Abbie competed in the 33m backstroke race and Emma competed in the 33m breaststroke race.

We are so proud of the girls for representing themselves and Rushall in such a fantastic way.  A great afternoon had by all the children.

A huge well done to Abbie and Emma!!

Dance Festival

Friday 17th March

On Friday, children from Years 3-6 went to The Forest Arts Centre to take part in a whole day dance festival where they took part in dance workshops with children from different schools and showcased their wonderful performances that they have been rehearsing in school.  They had a fantastic day learning new styles of dance and were lucky enough to watch such a wide variety of dances from the other schools.

A amazing day had by all, well done to the Rushall Tap Dancers!

The children will be putting on a performance for parents to come and watch what they have been learning, dates and times to be announced.

Cross Country

Tuesday 7th March 2017

On Tuesday we hosted the final race in the cross country league. We had a number of different schools join us for the event – it was wonderful having so many children here taking part in the race. The weather was perfect for the afternoon and even more children from Rushall were given the opportunity to take part in the event.  The children had to run 1200 metres around the school fields.  Even though there were some very wet parts to the course they all had a fantastic time taking part.


Congratulations to Jarrad and Chloe who finished in the Top 20 again!

Well done to Jarrad, Jack, Rhys, Lucas, Charlie, Abbie, Emma, Lewis, Chloe, Faye, Ruby-Anne, and Leah-Mai who all took part.

A huge thank you to Miss Maeer and her wonderful Year 5 team who helped to organise and sell refreshments to all of our visitors.  Super work everyone!

Swimming Gala

Thursday 2nd March 2017

Yesterday afternoon, a group of children from Years 4, 5 and 6 took part in the Shelfield Swimming Gala at Brownhills School.  The children had an individual heat to compete in and then two relays each, a freestyle and a medley relay.  All four swimming strokes were included, front crawl, backstroke, breaststroke and butterfly. The children were outstanding and swam so well that as a team they came 3rd overall on the day.

Well done to Abbie F, Emma F, Martha L, Faith S, Rhys S, Jack W, Marcus A and Luke H.

We are very proud of all of you! Keep up with your swimming!
