Now as the sun is shining, we unfortunately look back to the 19thJune 2019 and the Dorset School Games Summer Festival that never was. Nevertheless, there was still one competition that avoided the rain at Bryanston, as 150 year 7, 8 & 9 pupils demonstrated tremendous amounts of determination, to take part in the Indoor Rowing County Finals in partnership with British Rowing. A huge congratulations to all who took part and a special thanks to British Rowing for delivering such an inspiring event.
On the 26thJune, the Dorset School Games returned to Bryanston with young people competing in Equestrian, Handball and U14 Girls Rounders. All of the young people in attendance were a credit to their school and should be extremely proud of what they achieved.
Poole Phoenix were delivering the Handball competition for year 5&6 pupils and Liz Roberts, Handball coach, mentioned "I enjoy these days so much, 6 courts, 15 teams and a whole lot of Handball".
Equestrian is a very unique event within the Dorset School Games Programme, and a special mention must go to the equestrian staff at Bryanston School for organising and delivering such a prestigious programme of jumping, which all of the young people take great pride in competing in.
James Day, School Games Lead for Active Dorset mentioned, "positive experiences of competition are essential for continued engagement within sport, and I was so happy to see so many smiling faces in attendance today at Bryanston".
The following competitions are still planned to take place before the end of summer term; U13 Girls Cricket, U15 Volleyball, Tri-Golf & Quadkids. Use this link to find out more, https://www.activedorset.org/school-games-events.
