Salmestone Sports

At Salmestone we promote the School games, Spirit of the Games Values in all of the sports we do. The values were developed by young people to identify what the experience of school sport should be built around, and focus on personal excellence through competition.

 

The six values are as follows...

Honesty

With others and with yourself. Have the courage to do the right thing. Be truthful and promote fairness in every situation.

 

Teamwork

Treat everyone equally, support each other and work together to have fun and achieve. Celebrate each other's success. Be a good friend and a positive team player in school, sport and life.

 

Respect

Treating others politely and with understanding. Accepting life’s ‘ups and downs’ with grace. Respect every day, in everything you do and for everyone around you.

 

Self-belief

You’ve got to believe to achieve. Have the self-belief and confidence to succeed and reach your personal best.

  

Passion

Giving it 100%, putting your heart and soul into whatever you are doing and never giving up. Care about what you do and the people around you, and approach each opportunity with enthusiasm and positivity.

 

Determination

Keep going no matter what. Determination is about the journey you go on to push yourself and achieve your dreams. Have the mental strength and the self-discipline to overcome obstacles, commit to your goals and keep working every day to become the very best you can be. Don’t hold back!

At Salmestone we try to enter as many sporting competitions and festivals as possible. We aim to give the children and range of opportunities in school sports, whether that is participating at an after school club or representing the school at a festival or competition. This year is the first year we have entered the basketball competition which has allowed some children to try a new sport. We played a warm friendly against Northdown which enabled the children to get a real feel for the game and understand the rules a lot more. We then took the team to the Kent Games Qualifier at the Ursuline College to experience a competitive environment.  Below is the team who did our school proud. 

Dodgeball is a hugely popular sport at Salmestone. It is our most subscribed after school club and is often played on the playground at break and lunch.

On Wednesday 30th November we took 6 children to represent Salmestone at the Thanet Dodgeball competition. All of their practice during the after school club really showed as they only lost 1 game! 

Below is a picture of the children in their starting position ready to start their first competitive game.
