On Saturday September 25th we hosted our annual local interschool football tournament. Due to the pandemic putting it on hold for a year, it was an extra special moment welcoming pupils, teachers and families from the local area to play football here once again.
Alongside St Lawrence College, the schools that took part were Upton Junior School, St. Saviour’s, St Peter’s, St Nicholas, Holy Trinity Ramsgate, St Joseph’s and Garlinge.
The day started at 9.15am with an introduction from our Head of Junior PE, James Marsh, who was the tournament organiser and then the first games kicked off at 9.30am promptly.
The weather was perfect for football and the atmosphere was supportive and jovial from the spectators on the side-lines. On the pitch all schools demonstrated good team play and there was a friendly competitive edge.
In total there were 16 games played throughout the morning, with lots of goals and excitement. At the end of the tournament the overall winners were Upton Junior School. They edged out the competition to take the coveted golden ball trophy and were worthy winners on the day.
Congratulations to Upton Junior School and all of the schools who attended. We are already looking forward to next year’s tournament and hope to make it an even bigger and more successful event.
