On Wednesday 23rd November, Chiltern Way Academy hosted a Hockey Festival for schools in the local area. The Festival was run by Alfriston School Sports Leaders alongside Miss Johnson. All of the participants had a great day while getting engaged with the games as well as introducing themselves to pupils of neighbouring schools. The participants were divided into teams and the sports leaders led each team in an activity. These teams included players from each of the four schools. After a short break the pupils were put back into school teams and they all participated in a Hockey Tournament.
Alfriston drew two matches and won one.
The morning was a success as pupils were encouraged to communicate with each other during and between the games. This was a good method for them to “break the ice” with new people and be able to work as a team. Everyone involved enjoyed the afternoon and hopes to do it again soon.
The next event will be the year 7 and 8’s dance festival.
