Congratulations to the students listed above! These students have officiated a sport of their choice for the school demonstrating the core values of scholarship and fair play. This has been signed off within their passports!

Another congratulations to the netball officiators pictured above who all passed their YUA netball qualification. They can now umpire games for their own age group!

If you are interested in gaining a qualification in umpiring, please speak to a member of PE staff.

Rounders season begins!

On the 14th April many joined to the Passmores rounders club after school. It was lovely to see lots of people were interested and came along to play and train. For the first 5 minutes we were all practicing our throwing and catching and for the rest of the time we played a match.

Come to rounders club on Tuesdays after school!

Passmores were lucky enough to be visited by Rachel Laybourne! Rachel has represented British Volleyball at Olympic games and held a volleyball session for all students after school.

It was a great day and all students enjoyed the session!

We want to thank Rachel for giving up her time and lets hope that volleyball continues to grow at Passmores.

On Wednesday the 18th Match we had 4 rugby sides representing Passmores Academy at the essex finals at Thurrock rugby club. In order to play in this tournament the sides had to win the west essex tournaments (at upper Clapton rugby club) which 4 of our schools sides did:
Year 7/8 girls bye to Essex
Year 7 boys – winning the west Essex tournament overall (unbeaten)
Year 10/11 girls bye to Essex
Year 10/11 boys winning the tournament overall (unbeaten)

This was already a great achievement for us to say that we have 4 age group which were arguably the best in west Essex was great for the students. The Essex tournament saw a big step up in level and proved to be a great learning experienced for all 4 teams.

I have all the table of results and scores of the matches if you would like to include any I am able to forward information and team photos ect onto you.

Our biggest success was our year 7 & 8 girls who did not lose a game winning the Essex schools shield. As an addition to this great success the girls got to meet 5 international players who where at the tournament to promote female rugby and presented the shield to the students.

This is a good piece of work done within GCSE PE and has used different types of punctuation for example: Full stops, Colons and capital letters. It has excellent spelling and is mostly grammatically correct. This was done using the comic life app. More comics to follow.
