Every year six of our gifted in sport children are chosen to be sport's leaders. This is a very sort after role and they will often write to coach Suv giving their reasons why they would be good at this job. During their time as Sport's Leader they may be asked to assist with the younger children's PE lesson, help set up equipment before the lesson begins and also help run intra competitions within the school. First thing in the morning they work with a small group of pupils, where they will do various exercises setting them up for the day.
These children have high personal standards, show a positive image as a leader and possess the following attributes:-
Attitude Organisational skills Communication
Confidence Respect Enthusiasm
Responsibility Reliability Initiative
Maturity Safety Awareness Effort
On 13th and 14th November 2018 Years 3, 4, 5 and 6 took part in a Sportshall Athletic event where they competed against local schools.
On Tuesday morning, the first of the year 3/4 team took part against 9 other schools competing in events such as standing long jump, chest push, javelin, 5 strides, vertical jump, speed bounce and several different relay events. All children had a magnificent day with most of the races being won by Holy Trinity. As a result of their amazing work we finished in 1st place and now go on to represent Dartford in the Kent School Games.
In the afternoon our year 5/6 team took on 12 other schools and made us proud by finishing in second place, narrowly missing out on first by just 2 points.
The Wednesday was another exciting day with more of our 3/4 children taking part. Finishing in 9th place,they showed a great deal of sportsmanship and were always encouraging each other to do well.
We were so proud of all the children who took part over the 2 days.
In October some of our year 5 / 6 children competed against 13 other schools in a Quicksticks Hockey Tournament. A brilliant day was had by all with team Holy Trinity winning 3 of their 4 matches and finishing first in their group.
We then had to play Gateway in the final where we put up a good fight but lost 4-1. From the 14 schools that competed we finished a magnificent 2nd place.
Our year 3 / 4 team lost their first game, drew the second and won their third with a fantastic score of 8-0. They then went on to compete against Oakfield, where they won the game 6-5 finishing the day in 7th place.
Basketball WOW Day
On 1st October 2018 the school was visited by Paul Sturgess a former Harlem Globetrotter basketball player. Measuring 7 ft 8 inches he is the tallest professional basketball player in the world and currently in the Guinness book of records as Britain's tallest man.
He was accompanied by his colleague Mark Waters (who is also an athlete and a PE teacher) and together they like to visit schools all over the country to talk about their love of sport.
The day began with an inspirational talk which included important issues such as having a growth mind set, what it is like to be different, making the most of your talents, healthy living, ant-bullying and sports for all. The pair then had sessions with every class teaching them basketball skills, having exercise and fun and games.
Football Festivals Term 1

I am very proud of the children of Holy Trinity-the way that they show determination, honesty, respect, passion, self belief and most importantly their teamwork. Our moto 'Be gracious when you win, try harder when you lose' is a testament to their drive and passion for sports. Well done to all our team!
Yours in sport,
Sports Day 2018
Records were broken, pulses were racing, determination was explosive!
This was such a successful Sports Day. Despite the heat and the dry field the children raced and competed with such passion and this made the day one to remember.
We started in our traditional Holy Trinity way with the Sports Leaders leading the children out with the Olympic torch. The children chanted their house names and wore their house colours with pride.After a lap of the field the Sports Day began!
We would like to thank the parents who supported and participated in this day and made the tug of war a treat for their children to watch!
