SMA presented Silver Mark Award for Sport
We are delighted to announce that we, St Matthew Academy, have achieved the School Games SILVER Mark Award for the 2018/19 academic year
The School Games Mark is a Government led award scheme launched in 2012, facilitated by the Youth Sport Trust to reward schools for their commitment to the development of competition across their school and into the community, and we are delighted to have been recognised for our success.
Our sporting achievements this year include:
U16 Boys Lewisham Basketball Winners
U14 Girls Lewisham Basketball Winners
U14 Boys Lewisham Handball Winners
Lewisham Rowing Team Winners
Lewisham Athletics Championships Runners up
Year 7 & 8 Indoor athletics Runners up
With a total of young people competing in local inter-school competitions this year, we are extremely proud of our pupils for their dedication to all aspects of school sport, including those young volunteers, leaders and officials who made our competitions possible.
As part of our application, we were asked to fulfil criteria in the areas of participation, competition, workforce and clubs, and we are pleased that the hard work of everyone at our school has been rewarded this year.
We look forward to applying once again in 2020!
