FAIR PLAY AWARD
The Mini Youth Games is a Medway Sport competition that offer a range of sports and games for individual primary schools.
The Mini Youth House Games allow primary school pupils from across Medway to experience the benefits of taking part in a 10 different events.
When schools enter any one event in the Mini Youth Games’ programme they are automatically signed up to the Fair Play Charter. All schools must abide by the Fair Play Charter in an attempt to encourage safe practice, foster good sportsmanship and encourage a spirit of co-operation and friendly rivalry. Furthermore the children must abide by the decisions of the referees, umpires and tournament organisers, including school volunteer students.
During each event the teachers, umpires/referees and children are asked to choose one school, which they feel to foster a positive spirit of competition, good sportsmanship and respect towards others.
Our school was consistently nominated for this achievement. After all ten events and all the votes were counted our school had received more votes than any other school. Therefore we are currently the Mini Youth games fair play champions for 2013-14.
