NEWS

The BMS PE and Health Faculty prides itself on promoting sport for all and encouraging all of our students to lead a healthy, active lifestyle. In addition an extensive range of competitive extra-curricular opportunities are offered to provide students with the opportunity to excel in sport. This week has seen District success for both our football and athletics teams which we are very proud of. The Year 8 Boys football squad competed in the District Division 1 7-a-side tournament and after a very competitive evening of football came out winners over FC Academy in a penalty shootout. The following evening was the District Round of the Indoor Athletics competitions with the Year 7 and 8 BMS teams in competition with Queens, Westfield and Yavneh Schools. Both the Year 7 Girls and the Year 8 Boys teams managed to win their respective competitions – a fantastic achievement. With a win for the Y10 Boys basketball team on Wednesday evening it has been a really successful week for BMS sport.

Next Wednesday we look forward to the Boys District Division 1 end of season League football finals with BMS teams having made the finals at Y7, Y8, Y9 and Y10. The games will be played at Parmiters School with each game kicking off at 2.15. If parents are coming to support IT IS ESSENTIAL THAT THEY PARK IN THE PAVILION CAR PARK AT PARMITERS NOT THE SPORTS CENTRE CAR PARK. ALL PARENTS MUST ALSO SIGN IN AT THE PAVILION BUILDING for safeguarding reasons. I look forward to reporting back on the outcomes of the finals next week.

FOOTBALL

Year 8 DISTRICT 7-A-SIDE TOURNAMENT – Mr Burnell / Mr Symeou

Date : Monday 4th Feb 2019

Result : Winners        

Squad : Cameron M, Adyn O, David T, Kaylan F, Ronan I, Ari A, Gonzalo G, Bailey N, Dominic R, Kayan S, Jaden J, Karris S, Lex A, Joshua P, Qasim K, Djani C, Astor I, Thomas H,

Comment : Monday saw both the year 8 A and B teams take a trip to queens for their 7-A-Side tournament. Both teams were placed in separate sides of the draw but had the potential to meet later on in the tournament. The B team struggled for goals and were unfortunate to narrowly miss out on escaping the group. The A team were in fine form for the most part and were looking like strong favourites to win the final. In the end, the A team won the final on penalties after a difficult match vs Francis Combe.

BASKETBALL

Year 10 v Westfield (District League) – Mr Cartledge

Date : Wednesday 6th February 2019

Result : Won 20-16

Scorers : J Marsh 6, G Rowe 6, J Sotomey 4, R Sims 4

Squad : J Marsh, G Rowe, J Sotomey, R Sims, B Castello, A Doody, T Vieru, M Uthayakumar

Commended performances : Whole team defence !

Comment :  The year 10 boys made a really positive start to the season with a well deserved 20-16 win over a very competitive Westfield team. The team were excellent on defence throughout the match with high levels of effort and concentration. Some improved offence as the game went on saw the boys take the lead in the 2nd quarter and stay out in front for the remainder of the game. Some excellent rebounding work from J Sotomey under the basket and solid offensive driving from R Sims, J Marsh and G Rowe was the difference between the 2 teams.

INDOOR ATHLETICS

HERTSMERE PARTNERSHIP EVENT

Date and locations: Tuesday 5th February 2019 at Queens School

Teams: Year 7 and 8 boys and girls

Opposition: Westfield, Queens, Yavneh

The district round of the Sportshall Hall Athletics Challenge took place at Queens school and Bushey Meads fielded strong teams in all four age groups.  With a maximum of 8 athletes per team students compete in a variety of events including the standing triple and long jump, indoor shot, speed bounce, 2 lap, obstacle and finish with relays.

It was a fun evening of athletics with the BMS students acquitting themselves very well against tough opposition.  With lots of victories across all of the age groups it was great to see all of the students enjoying themselves. There were even bigger smiles when the results came through and Bushey Meads had won at both the Year 7 girls and Year 8 boys age groups, a fantastic team effort with some great individual performances.

Teams :

Year 7 girls

S.Hindocha, S.Hodge, K.Kovarova, H.Imansoura, G.Mitea, R.Richards, R.Wheeler 

Year 8 girls

Kr.Chanderana, Ka.Chanderana, I.Smith, M.Worley, K.White, I. Harry-Brown, M. Choudhary

Year 8 boys

  1. Richards, D. Tegzes, R.Ismaili, Q. Kazmi, M. Sandu Nicolaescu, G. Gonzalez-Aller, A. Law.

We look forward to hearing how the Year 7 girls get on when they attend the county finals later in the year, sadly there is no competition at this level for the year 8 boys but we hope to see them and all the other athletes representing the school in the Summer Athletics matches.

A reminder to all students specialist athletics coaching with Watford Harriers takes place, for free, every Tuesday after school from 3.15 – 4.15.
