Here at St Florence VC School we are very proud of the effort and commitment shown to sport. We run a variety of different sports clubs throughout the year, football, netball, cricket, rounders, cycling and running to name just a few. These clubs are well attended and the children approach them with enthusiasm and have a great deal of fun.
Every child from Reception – Year 6 go to Tenby Leisure Centre for swimming lessons for a term each academic year in order to improve their water confidence and swimming technique. Years 5 and 6 also cover life saving. At the end of each year we have our swimming gala where the children compete in houses for the swimming cup. We regularly send teams to the Sladen relay.
Over past years KS2 have visited outdoor pursuit centres for residential trips where they are able to experience a variety of different adventurous activities including the muddy assault course, kayaking, abseiling and many, many more. We are able to offer pupils the opportunity to take part in sailing at Llanion Cove.
Athletics and Cross Country
To add to the success of our running club we have seen an improvement in participation in cross country and athletics. We send pupils across key stage two to compete in the Oakwood and Dyfed cross country events. As the summer term approaches we have many athletics meets including Tenby family of schools area sports and the Dyfed athletics where we aim to take boys and girls teams.
We often have local clubs provide taster sessions for our pupils to encourage participation in a variety of sporting activities. This year Mr Ryan Townsend of Trefloyne Golf Club has provided sessions for both Foundation Phase and Key Stage 2.
Our Tuesday afternoons are spent on enrichment activities and choices provided by professional instructors have included crown green bowling, trampolining, dance and, rock climbing.
