A great afternoon of rugby, well organised by Sevenoaks Rugby Club and played in an impressive sporting atmosphere by all the schools.
Oscar, Andrew, Katy, Oliver, Adam, Ben, Isabella and Chiamaka represented St John’s and all their four matches were end-to-end games which were really hard fought with the results being so close. In any one match the ability to remove the tags from the opposition in tight situations can be the decider. This was probably the reason for us losing three very close matches to Seal (1-2), Shoreham (4-6) and Otford (7-8) with our one success being against Anthony Roper which we won 4-3. As usual the St Johns’ spirit was always there, the children were willing to learn and there were smiles all round.
I would like, on behalf of all the Governors and I am sure the parents, to congratulate the school on the School Games Mark Platinum Award. This is a top award for a school’s commitment to develop its pupils to be the best they can be in competitive and non-competitive sport and this is surely the DNA of St John’s. St John’s is all about the development of each individual child, making sure they are happy in their own skin and therefore self-confident and this is the mind set of the whole school. The Governors are so proud and privileged to be involved in such a successful school, well done to you all.
