On Tuesday, Hampton High organised and hosted the Year 2 Cluster Festival. All primary schools in our cluster were invited to compete in the multi skills event which involved a variety of different physical stations for the Year 2 students to perform their very best in.
The festival ran smoothly and was very successful. A big well done to the many Year 9 Sports leaders who were awesome. They took on their roles and responsibilities with great maturity and organised their stations and the Year 2 students, ensuring that all involved were motivated and having fun.
Congratulations to Buckingham School who were the winners overall, and good luck to them as they enter the Richmond Borough competition next week’.
Miss Coulson, teacher and PE Coordinator at Hampton Infant and Nursery school said, “We were so impressed with the Hampton High students for their enthusiasm and organisational skills, guiding our Year 2 children through the fun events of the Year 2 Cluster Festival. The students were so responsible and happy to help and were very kind to the children, explaining the events clearly and making sure everyone enjoyed it.”
Photos and clips of the day were posted on our Parents Facebook page creating a buzz amongst parents. It was lovely to see the following comments:
Helen Birch commented, “I went with Hampton Infants school today and the children from all the schools were super sporty and had a brilliant time because the Hampton High students were just great at looking after them. They were a real credit to the school. It was lovely to see lots of ex Hampton Infant/Junior school pupils there looking so mature with their peers from other local primary schools - I recognised a couple of lovely pupils from Hampton Hill. The staff were great too! Well done HH.”
Claire Wadham commented, “I was also there with Helen Birch supervising Hampton Infants children and I can echo her comments. We were so impressed with the Year 9 and Year 12 students who helped. They were so encouraging with the little ones and helpful to the adults. Moving around the school, we saw nothing but smart uniforms and courtesy, with students stopping and waiting while we passed. It was break time as we left and were shown to the toilets in Wordsworth by the Year 12s, all the Year 7s on break were very polite and friendly, and I managed to embarrass my son as we passed! I think the school was shown in its best light to the parents who accompanied us on the trip.”
