Pinewood Donation to RNLI

Restless Development RNLI Donation Certificate Feb 19 5 re-size

Pinewood children who took part in the Flight Centre Restless Development Triathlon in the summer raised so much money that we were the second highest fundraising school in the South West, not only raising money for the Restless Development charity, but also for our chosen charity, the RNLI. Some of the pupils who took part in the triathlon were today presented with a certificate for our donation of £3,303 to the RNLI. Well done to you all for raising so much money!

Inter-House Cross-Country

cross-country 19 85

With a new course to race the children were raring to go on a wonderful winter’s afternoon – the conditions were perfect. The event is a highlight of the school calendar, with every runner counting towards the overall results. Our PE/Games focus this term is “How to target PBs in Health Related Exercise (HRE) tasks?”  Having reviewed all the results it is clear that a number of children achieved their PB – well done! To those who feel they could have moved up the field a touch more – log the experience and push on hard each week in the school’s Pot Lid Lane Time Trial. Thank you to all the marshals and staff runners that provided motivation on the course to the children, and to all the parents dotted around the course. It was great to see nearly 300 children out being active in beautiful surroundings – it may have felt tough at times, but remember that the physical and mental benefits easily surpass these brief moments. Congratulations to all the runners!

IAPS National Athletics Championships

Melissa Watson 1st Javelin at Nationals crop

On a blistering hot day, three of Pinewood‘s athletes travelled up to Birmingham to participate in the annual National Athletics Prep Schools Track & Field Championships. Having qualified through finishing 1st or 2nd in the respective regional events, Wizzy, Poppy and Melissa gave an impressive account of themselves to finish 5th, 2nd and 1st respectively.

Wizzy began the morning with her efforts in the 1500m. From the start of the gun going off, the intense pace of the race made for spectacular viewing. Wizzy finished an impressive 5th; a gutsy performance for one so young.

By lunchtime Poppy had arrived and the Pinewood field events had started. Once again the nerves played their part in Poppy producing three splendid throws. At the end of the third round Poppy had made the final eight. With one more throw left Poppy produced an excellent throw of 26.05m to take silver medal!

Poppy Tulloch 2nd Javelin at nationals crop

In the last round of events in the day came Melissa’s Girls Under 12 Javelin. Once again Melissa excelled in her competition to record a throw of 26m to win the competition. A fitting finale to another successful season of athletics!

A super set of results on a day Pinewood performed amongst the very best prep school athletes in the country. The school are so very proud of you girls! Well done!
