Parents are invited to spectate at sports day on Wednesday 19th July. Events run from 9am to 3pm. All parents are to report directly to the track and stand to the left as they enter. Parents are also requested to park off college site and walk on site. Full details will appear shortly on the college website on the event timings with the track finals in the afternoon. We look forward to seeing you. From the PE faculty.
College uniform will be replaced with college PE kit by all pupils for sports day on Wednesday 19th July. We also ask pupils to bring sun protection and a drinks bottle.
The unusual heat wave this week has made us consider our summer uniform policy. Whilst we clearly wish to maintain high standards of dress, it has become clear that the boys’ current uniform can be uncomfortable in hot weather. We are considering introducing tailored shorts for the boys as part of the summer uniform option for 2018
We will be undertaking a consultation with staff, parents and students over the next few weeks. If parents would like to make a contribution to this discussion they can do so by email (email@example.com) or in person at a meeting on 29th June, 3.45pm in the Innovation Centre.
Under 12s girls football Devon County finals
The Year 7 football squad embarked on the tough challenge of competing in the Devon football finals on Wednesday. They had already impressively defeated Okehampton to qualify for the finals.
The competition was in a league format of 8 teams, with the girls having to play 7 games of 10 minutes in the gruelling heat.
Tavistock girls realised the huge task ahead after narrowly losing the first two games, but showed great resilience to be unbeaten in the next four games. It was with immense pride and commitment that the girls were able to bounce back from the early setbacks to produce some outstanding football.
Even though we lost the last game an overall 5th place in Devon was a fantastic achievement!!!!!! The girls also found time to cheer on Horrabridge primary who finished third in the Under 10s event.
There were many outstanding performances including the string of brilliant saves from Chloe Knight in goal to keep four consecutive clean sheets and then follow this by amazingly scoring straight from a goalkick. It is also important to highlight the player of the tournament Tilly Murdoch. Her powerful runs from midfield were brilliant and resulted in being our top goalscorer. She is definitely a footballer to keep an eye on.
The girls were a credit to the college and again displayed the persistence, work ethic and team spirit mixed with skill to be successful at the highest level.
