2022 Leavers Return For Past Pupil Sports Matches
Crescent School gave a fantastic warm welcome to the Leavers of 2022, on Wednesday 5 October, when they returned to their old primary school to take part in the annual Past Pupil Sports Matches.
It was lovely to see all their familiar faces and to welcome the new Year 7s and their parents back into school. After a quick catch up, coffee and cake, Assistant Head and Year 6 teacher, Mrs Webb, took the pupils and their parents on a tour. We had plenty of great feedback with pupils and parents commenting, 'It is just like coming home,' 'It is lovely and familiar,' and 'The children have been so excited to return, it is all they have been talking about.' What was really lovely was that when the Year 7s visited their old classroom, they found their desks and sat in them and as if they had never gone.
Then the boys and girls headed out onto the field and courts, ready to face Crescent's teams. The matches were great fun to watch, fast-paced with plenty of shots at goal. Midway through the teams swapped over to ensure everyone had a chance to play. Sport is such a huge part of life here at Crescent, and it was wonderful to see the camaraderie of all the pupils.
This year the results in the Football were 6-1 to past pupils and in the Netball the Year 7s also came out on top beating the Crescent team 9-3. Both were fantastic matches played with great spirit. Thank you to everyone for coming along.
We always like hearing from past pupils and encourage everyone within the Crescent community to stay in touch with the school. The Foundation has an active alumni community, past parents are welcome to join, as are past pupils once they have finished their secondary education. You can find out more here:
