Wear Blue for Antibullying

The School Council and Anti-Bullying committee held a vote and decided that on             10 November Rowan Gate Primary School should take part in a national day to support Bullying UK.

Children wore blue or mufti on this day in exchange for a suggested donation of £1.

A total of £151.50 was raised which will be split between the Bullying UK charity and the Schools Council Anti bullying committee.

Well done and thank you to all those who too part.


Table Cricket Festival

On Tuesday 7th November, Peaches East attended a Table Cricket Festival at Greenfields School, Northampton. There were 5 teams in attendance who all competed against each other in a round robin tournament to score the most points. In every game both teams had one innings to bat and the other to bowl/field. All of the children took turns throughout the festival to bowl the ball to children from a different school.

The results revealed how close the tournament had been with Rowan Gate coming joint 3rd on points with Billingbrook and there being 10 points between first and second place!

The children thoroughly enjoyed the festival and had great fun as well as being delighted when they received a certificate of participation!

Tri Golf Festival

A big thank you to Rowan Gate school and their leaders for very capably hosting the first Tri Golf Festival on 19th October 2017.

It was an exciting and closely fought festival, with 3 schools The Gateway, Northgate and Rowan Gate competing, with 15 pupils put to the test –  chipping over rivers, putting at targets, and testing different hand eye coordination skills required to perfect direction and weight of shots.

Staying inside this time helped to avoid the cold, wind and rain interfering with the 6 activities that were undertaken.   The Rowan Gate Leaders set up 2 lots of 3 activities – confidently explaining them, and positively demonstrating each of the activities, and scores gained for each shots.

The Young Leaders were Fantastic – a big thank you to them all – some who had attended the Tri Golf Leaders Training and some who hadn’t.  They all showed great knowledge and understanding of the rules and individual activities.  They all spoke with clarity and confidence and I’m sure they will be a great asset to any school sports clubs or to assist with PE lessons anytime.

The results were :

3rd place – The Gateway with 574 points

2nd place – Rowan Gate with 682 points

1st place – Northgate with 747 points.

Well done to all those who attended – both participants and leaders the scores and skills everyone displayed were really impressive and everyone improved throughout the festival – we look forward to seeing you at the next one.
