Congratulations to all the students and staff from St Mary's and Christ the King who took part in the Academies 6th RACE FOR LIFE event (Race at our place). Yet again it was a fantastic event with girls, boys and staff dressed for the occasion in pink to support Cancer Research! It was lovely to see so many students and staff participating be it running or walking for such a worthy cause. For the more competitive amongst us, it was Mr Preston (ICT Teacher) who came storming in in first place, closely followed by Miss De-Gier Flood (Technology teacher). Our first student across the finish line was Natalia Luczak (Year 8 - pictured).
Well done to the boys who represented St Mary's in the Blackpool Secondary Schools' Yr8 Handball Tournament with a 100% record. The competition was held at St Mary's, towards the end of the last half-term, and was refereed by an elite Handball player, (aka Mr Webb!)
On Friday 19th May a team of Under 13's and Under 15's girls took part in a Touch Rugby event held at Fleetwood RUFC. The morning was made up of fun team work games as well as an opportunity to develop the basics of the game. The afternoon involved playing full games against other schools. The girls worked really hard all day and were a credit to the college. Well done to the Under 15's who came 2nd overall.
