PE Rewards: Newcastle Eagles – 12th February 2019
On Friday evening, 23 students went to the Eagles Community Arena to watch Newcastle Eagles vs Manchester Giants in the BBL Championship as part of a PE reward trip. After the Eagles had previously been beaten by Manchester Giants, the pupils could not predict a winner; however, with the majority of pupils being Middlesbrough fans, most decided to support Manchester Giants! During the first quarter, Newcastle Eagles found themselves behind as they could not convert their chances. However, slowly but surely, the Eagles found their rhythm and started to crawl their way back into the game to end the second quarter level on points. The Eagles continued to place pressure on the Giants and started to develop a healthy lead even after their best player came off injured after a nasty collision. The Eagles dominated the rest of the game, ending up victorious and winning both the game and the hearts of Our Lady and St Bede pupils! After the game, the Eagles stayed behind to sign autographs and take pictures which was a fantastic touch and a moment the pupils will never forget.
Year 7 Boys Rugby – 12th February 2019

As a result, the team managed to secure the Durham County RFU Schools Year 7 Boys Shield and bring it home for the 2018-19 season. Top effort all round, well done lads.

Year 7 Football Team
The Year 7 football team performed exceptionally well on Thursday evening. The boys played against Northfield in the league. They won 9-3 with one student scoring six of those goals securing himself the man of the match. Another student scored a hat trick to make up the rest of the goals, whilst one kept our opponents at bay with his impressive defending skills!
The win was even more impressive due to the fact that four of the nine players on the field had been out representing the school in cross country all afternoon.
Some of them were also going straight to training for their club afterwards as well.
Excellent commitment and team effort all round, well done boys!
On Wednesday 5th December we took 52 students out to Preston Park, where we had a mixture of sports leaders and competitors.
The sports leaders did a fantastic job organising the course and ensuring all the competitors made it round safely. The competitors put in tremendous effort, thoroughly challenging themselves in the wind and rain to make it around the course. It was an extremely tough run.
A massive congratulations to James Skull, Jessica Dawson and Troy Bramley, who all managed to qualify for the next round.
On Thursday 15th November, a group of students had been selected to be part of the first PE reward trip of the year to Infinite Air. After a short bus journey to Durham, students were welcomed by the Inifinite Air staff, given socks and a safety brief. All students were incredibly enthusiastic and excited to get started. Madeline Joynes demonstrated fantastic gymnastic ability on the spring boards which would not look out of place on the Olympic stage! Many students faced their fears and jumped off the highest platform onto the air bag. Meanwhile, Mr Everson was showing his dominance on the gladiator balance beam by putting Mr Healey to shame. Overall, a brilliant trip which was enjoyed by all.
