The much anticipated annual St  Joseph’s School Sports day for Years 3 to 10 took place on Tuesday 30th April at the impressive venue of Exeter Arena – one of the highlights of the school year. All pupils from years 3-10 travelled in order to take part and represent their Houses and to gain valuable points as they competed to lift the House trophy.

In an exciting addition for 2019, the PE department introduced the ‘Spartan Challenge’ which allowed pupils to double their points if they really challenged themselves: a total of 12 pupils took part in the Spartan challenge in the Senior School, in which each child needed to complete 8 events were including a mixture of track and field disciplines.

Staff were very impressed with the high participation levels across all events and believe the number of pupils taking part were the highest they had seen for both Junior and Senior students.

An amazing 24 new school records were set across Junior and Senior events in both track and field, and 2 previous records were matched. Points were awarded purely for participation and the two houses with the most participation points were St Dominic’s in the Junior school and Trerice in the Senior School. The overall winners are the house with the most participation points and points awarded for position in events combined.

Congratulations to Cothele and St Catherine’s who were the overall winning houses of 2019.

A huge thank you to all spectators who contributed to the supportive atmosphere on the day.

ISA National Football

February 7th, 2019 | Posted by Rebecca Walker in Sports - (0 Comments)

The under 14’s performed very well on our annual trip to Nottingham for ISA football last week. Staying overnight at the University of Nottingham prepared the students well. They were well motivated for the tournament despite half of the squad being a year younger than most opponents. The team made their way to the Shield Final, where they lost 2-0 but had some fantastic performances along the way and many goals scored. Well done to Daniel, Robert, Callum, George, Will, Harry, Robin and Henry for representing the school so well. ⚽️

Well done to all 8 teams who participated in the ISA South West Football Tournament today. Mr Matthews and Mr Cardoo were impressed with the enthusiasm, football skills and team spirit from all the children today.
Congratulations to Trinity A team for coming 1st, St Michael’s for 2nd and the St Joseph’s team for 3rd place. We are waiting for confirmation but it is likely that the top 3 teams have qualified for the ISA National competition.
Well done everyone ⚽️
