Sutton Tri Golf Tournament
On a sunny and bright Tuesday the 14th of May, ten gallant Year 3s and Mr Caulfield set for St Philomena's High School to take part in the Tri-Golf tournament - a fairly new tournament involving a carousel of putting and chipping challenges. Our St Cecilia's group only had two practice sessions, and they were competing against lots of well practiced Year 3s and 4s from 7 other schools.
Despite this, our group of ten showed fantastic attitude and sportsmanship, cheering each other on in each of the eight events. The team-leaders from St Philomena's were wowed by our points tally and we even managed to get the only 2 bulls-eyes of the whole day in the Golf Dart challenge! Our teamwork was recognised by at the awards ceremony which followed the events, as we were one of three schools to receive a sportsmanship award.
Following this, the results were announced. Of the 8 teams competing, St Cecilia managed to finish in a sensational second place! This is a fantastic achievement considering most of the team had never played golf at all before. I believe the parent support definitely gave our golfers that extra determination to do well!
All ten of our golfers had a blast, and this event has definitely motivated them to keep at progressing their golf. We hope their terrific effort has inspired you to give golf a go yourself!
Y5 Boys Semi-Final against Cheam Park Farm School
Our school football team is very proud for how far we made it in the Sutton Schools Year 5 Cup competition.
Our coach, Levi, is the main reason our team have made it this far. He has coached us as best as he can to make us become the team we all are now.
We played Cheam Park Farm.
Sadly we lost 3-1. The first half ended 1-0 to them but the 2nd half was where all the action happened ,their team scored a really good goal to make it 2-0 to them but we got a goal across by the right hand side of the pitch and finished off in the back of the net by George!
Our goalie Oliver was amazing!!! And it was his first match! But the main thing was how we kept trying to score until the final whistle blew.

Girls team Football Match against Cheam Common at Sutton United
Friday 18th January .
Even though we lost 6 nil we all played our best. Mariah saved lots of goals in the first half and really helped our team. Unfortunately there were a few injuries but they didn’t stop us from persevering. We almost scored many times but their goalie was very good and their girls were really strong.
We were all upset about the score but we really enjoyed the match. Thank you to Levi our coach.

Girls Football Match against Hackbridge School
8th January 2019
On 8th January 2019 St Cecilia’s new girls team played their first match and it was against Hackbridge. Thanks to Levi for coaching us, Mrs Ryan for managing our team and Mr Caulfield for refereeing.
After a round of rock paper scissors team captain Ania determined who would start with the ball in the first half. Ten minutes into the game Hackbridge scored their first goal, but we were still hopeful.
After half time and the team huddle we were inspired to carry on. We quickly changed places and started to play, but we were a little bit worried because we had no substitutes. Soon it started raining. Despite getting soaking wet we pushed on. Even though Hackbridge scored another goal, we were still positive. Although we were tired and down 2-0 we created good opportunities. They scored again, so we were 3-0 down, but we pushed on till the end and we are proud of what we have done.
We were drenched, we were soaked but we knew we had done our best and we still love our football.

Autumn Term 2018
Netball Match St Cecilia’s v Manor Park
A Game 5 – 0 B Game 2 - 0
On the 31st of October 2018, 11 St Cecilia’s girls played a netball match against Manor Park. In the first match (the A-team) we won 5/0 . They were very competitive, but no match for us. We passed the ball well and had many chances to shoot.
In the second match (the B team), we won 2/0. We were very happy with our score but we did have an advantage because they had only 3 year 6s. All the rest were year 5s (including 2 boys) and they had only trained for 3 weeks.
The best part was that we had cheerleaders with blue and yellow pompoms. We are all excited to play our third match and we can’t wait to win again. ☺

Netball match against St Dunstan's School
17th of October 2018
We played two matches and in the first match we won 3/0. They were no match for us! Unfortunately, in our second match, we lost 1/0 but we still played really well and tried our best. Despite having fewer girls on our team, we managed to score three goals and that is excellent for our first match. We worked really hard in training and it all paid off in the game. Our teachers, Miss Moore and Mrs Everton, supported us throughout the whole game and our wonderful parents did too.

In the first part of the Autumn term, some children from Year 6 completed Supremo Training with Miss Suzy from the Sutton Schools Sports Partnership. They spent some time exploring different leadership skills and effective ways to communicate and inspire others. They then worked with some Year 1 children to put their training to good use!
The Junior Supremo Leaders will now be responsible for organising and leading sports sessions and events at school, as well as helping to maintain equipment and being positive role models for all our pupils.
Thank you Miss Suzy from SSP for a fantastic morning.
Summer Term - Football
10.7.18 St. Cecilia’s v Cheam Park Farm Juniors
Year 3 & 4 Friendly STC 3 – 0 CPF
When we got to Cheam Park Farm, we started warming up. In our team we had Jack, Fintan, Hannah, Luke, Samo, Oscar, Amelia, Dante and Evie. Our coaches were Mrs C. Harrison and Mrs J. Ryan. When the ball got kicked off the centre spot we felt warm and fuzzy inside as the CPF and STC parents cheered! As I stood in the goal I had a big view of what was happening. I heard all my team players giving compliments to each other. St. Cecilia’s were on the attack and after three minutes we scored! GOAL! After 7-8 minutes we scored again, 2-0! STC and CPF parents clapped and cheered!
Because we started the first kick off, they started the second half. As CPF were on the attack the CPF striker shot and skimmed the post and the ball went out. Samo passed the ball from the goal kick, STC were on the attack and Jack scored our final winning goal. It ended 3-0 for St. Cecilia’s! At the end we shook hands with CPF and thanked the referee. We took a picture in the goal of our team …here it is!

Spring Term: Year 5 boys football
We reached the quarter final of the Year 5 Cup and had to play Westbourne Primary. The match was played at Westbourne on their grass pitch. We got off to a great start with an early goal and played mostly in their half. They got a breakaway goal followed shortly by another one. In the second half Westbourne dominated play and scored a couple more goals; we kept battling hard right till the end but unfortunately were unable to score again. It was a very tough match and we were disappointed not to progress in the competition.
Spring Term: Year 6 Boys
We played league fixtures against Cheam Park which Andy said is one of the best teams. Our performance was very good, scoring a few goals and Archie saved lots of goals; however in the end Cheam Park Farm won.
We played Westbourne in the Cup quarter final, a match which was postponed several times. The pitch was very muddy and difficult to play on and there was a downpour during the second half. Westbourne are an outstanding team and beat us very comfortably. Levi was pleased with our performance and told us that all of us played a very good game, but that Westbourne were amazing.
We played at Abbey Primary on the 22nd February. Our team played with confidence and skill; Levi was very pleased with our passing football. We were unlucky that after extra time the match was a draw and had to go to a replay.
We went into the replay on 9th March more confident and were playing very well. Against the run of play Abbey scored a goal, this was very disappointing. We continued to play our passing football and were rewarded with a goal. Unfortunately in the second half Abbey scored again and some of our heads went down. Abbey finished as the winners.
Spring Term: Girls football
On 6th February we played against Cheam Common at Sutton United. Cheam Common had some very good players especially their striker who scored some incredible goas. We enjoyed the game and all worked as hard as we could till the final whistle. Although we lost, we knew we had done our best.

November 2017 - Year 6 - Girl's Netball - St. Cecilia's v Manor Park
On the 30th November, St. Cecilia’s participated in a netball match against Manor Park Primary. The anticipation was obvious; we were all so nervous yet excited about the match. The A team started with a strong line of defence. The ball was straight down to our end from our starting centre. We stayed in possession of the ball and it was down to our shooters to succeed in a 1-0 start, which they did. It was their centre, but we were too fast for them and had a second shot. It was soon half – time with a shocking score of 7-0. The game carried on and the other team didn’t get a touch of the ball. We finished with an astonishing score of 15-0.
It was the start of the B team’s match. There was much more competition with the ball zooming from one end to the other. There were many ups and downs but we were resilient and took a shot but unfortunately the scored stayed 0-0.
