Congratulations to everyone at Springwood!

We have been awarded the School Games Silver Mark for the first time at Springwood after the last 3 years of Bronze. We have worked hard to achieve this with our commitment to sport and PE within Springwood and due to increased participation in competitions and events. Well done everyone.

Upcoming Competitions
Spring term is a busy time for Springwood sports-competitiors. Throughout this term we'll be out and about, flying the Springwood flag at various sports arenas throughout Manchester. Take a look at the competions that we're involved in: 
We are continuing our development in football competition by entering the second stage of the "One City" Primary league. The next tournament will take place on Tuesday 7th March at Ten Acre Lane. Come on Springwood!
Team Springwood were an absolute credit to the school! Active participation, teamwork and communication were great strengths. We played eight different schools from across the North-West and won six out of eight matches!  Attitude, effort and behaviour were outstanding and great fun was had by all. We are currently waiting to see if we're through to the next round.
We will be taking part in our first ever Table Cricket competition, organised by Lancashire County Cricket Club. It will take place on Wednesday 29th of March at Emirates Old Trafford. We're sure our team will make us proud.
On Tuesday 21st March Springwood will be competing in the "Boccia 12s" Competition at Manchester Tennis Centre as part of the  Greater Manchester Winter School Games. Our team did us proud last year and this year three new competitors will be stepping up to the challenge!

Team Springwood represented the school by taking part in a Boccia tournament at "The Greater Manchester Winter School Games".

After a colourful, exciting and noisy opening ceremony we played teams from across Greater Manchester. Although we didn't top the table (this time!) we played really well and deserved to top the table in terms of effort! Well done Team Springwood - we're very, very proud of you!
