Year 6 Girls Transition Festival

St Giles took were happy to be invited to the Wakefield School Sports Network transition festival at the A1 Football Factory. Our girls played several matches against teams from within the Wakefield area. They represented school brilliantly- coming third on the day. Most importantly, they learned how to meet new people and step outside their comfort zone. We're on our way to being high school ready. 

The 5 Towns X Country

St Giles took part in the 5 Towns X Country. It was an excellent afternoon with some very close races. We were lucky enough to have several medalists. For more information about local running clubs please see the contacts below. 

Collaboration Cup Winners! 
Wow! What a team! Our current Year 6 have had limited time to compete against other schools due to the Pandemic, but you wouldn’t have thought it after Tuesday’s competition win. 
Scoring 40 goals and conceding just 4 shows how important we take PE and School Sport here at St Giles. It was a pleasure to witness our schools performances and I think we have some future stars in the making. 
Well done to everyone involved. One very proud teacher.

Wakefield Dynamos Cricket Competition

St Giles 88-84 Carleton Park - St Giles 99-46 Badsworth  -St Giles 54-63 Larks Hill

Placing 2nd in our group and narrowly missing out on a place in the Finals in Hunslet. 

Well done to all the schools involved. I hope this is the start of uninterrupted school sports after the Pandemic. Very proud of your efforts.
