The start of a new term sees the start of a new programme of sport and physical activity practices, clubs and competitive fixtures. Last year many of our students took the opportunity to build on their performance in lessons by attending the many extra-curricular clubs that are available at lunchtime and after school. This year we will be holding clubs in football, basketball, rugby, table tennis, badminton, gymnastics, trampolining, cricket, rounders, tennis, cheerleading, fitness, SEN sport and athletics.The clubs are all run by the PE and Health Faculty staff and take place at lunchtime and after school. In addition we are looking forward to an extensive range of friendly, District and County competitive sports fixtures which will be starting in September. All clubs are free of charge and open to all students.

For full details of the clubs, fixtures and practices students and parents need to check on the Bushey Meads School website in the Calendar icon where you will find a full list of the extra-curricular activities. This is updated on a weekly basis to show the fixtures and practices for each week. In addition students can check the notice boards in the boys and girls changing rooms and in the main PE lobby. The PE and Health Faculty also have their own Twitter account which includes regular updates on fixtures, match reports and details of forthcoming events.

All students who attend after school sports clubs will receive R2 Reward points every time they attend.

Students selected for teams will receive team sheets with start and finish times. Some clubs may change week by week depending on fixtures and meetings but parents should check the twitter account and the website for updates.  :

This weeks programme of activities can be seen below :

Football

Last week saw the Watford District trials with boys from all over the area trialling to make the local representative teams. We are proud to report that 4 of our students were successful in making the District squads and we wish them the best of luck with the forthcoming matches. 

Under 15 : Casian Tegzes

Under 13 : Joseph Hiett, Stefan Ardeleanu, Nsiah Walters

The turnouts for the first Bushey Meads football practices of the year have been absolutely fantastic. Over the last week nearly 160 boys from years 7-13 have taken part in practices and trial matches. Football clubs will continue throughout this term and it would be great to see these numbers continuing over the next few months.

NETBALL

It has been a fantastic start to this year’s netball season with a great turnout for all year groups practices. Matches started this week with a very tight game for the year 9 team – report below.  Everyone is welcome at netball practice, sessions start at 3.15 and finish at 4.15, full kit should be worn.

Tuesday 13th September : Mrs Cartledge

Year 9  v Immanuel (h)

Result: Drew 2-2

Squad: S. Doran, V Hill, I Palan. M Baile. L Winslett, I Wijerathna, E Bird,  Z O’Brart. L Qarib

Player of Match: I Wijerathna for strong interceptions throughout the match.

Comments:This was the first game back after a long break from competitive netball. The girls defending was very impressive and their passes were strong. The pace was very quick on both teams and fortunately the girls slowed down to produce some great movement down the court. A  special mention must be made to L.Qarib for stepping in to play centre which she did brilliantly.

A great start for all players.

PE kit

It is essential that students have the full correct PE kit for all lessons. This includes shinpads and black /yellow socks when participating in football lessons and also a pair of white sports socks for all other activities. Students will be reminded when activities change. Students not bringing the correct kit will instantly receive consequence points.

Girls should be wearing plain black shorts which are longer than the length of their PE shirt or hoody. Leggings should be black sports leggings and not see through.  Black tracksuit bottoms are also permitted.

ALL jewellery should be removed prior to the start of the lesson, including earrings, and hair should be tied up.
