Girls Cricket Team – London Youth Games
On Tuesday 21st June 2016 Little Ealing Primary girls Cricket team attended the London Youth Games. There were 32 teams from 32 boroughs and the standard was exceptionally high. The girls started off a little slow, maybe due to nerves but it was clear they were here for the long haul. The team under the guidance of Miss Wood, Mr Behzadi and Mr Mahoney improved game by game and other schools were starting to take note. After a thrilling semi-final where it came down to the last 2 balls to decide if we were to progress to the final or have to settle for 3rd or 4th place, the girls held their nerve and were triumphant to the final where the girls seemed to save the best to last and produced some outstanding Cricket and what turned out to be a comfortable victory. I am now
pleased to announce that Little Ealing Primary's girls Cricket team are the 2016 London Youth Games champions. Mr Behzadi, Specialist Sports Teacher.
Sainsbury's School Games Gold Award
Mr Behzadi our specialist sports teacher is thrilled to announce that Little Ealing Primary School has been awarded the Gold Award for PE and sports provision from the 'Sainsbury's School Games' initiative. This is a national government led award which rigorously assesses schools to ensure they are providing the very best physical education.
At LEPS we provide pupils with over 2 hours of PE per week and support PE further with a rich array of before and after sessions. Our school has competed in many sporting competitions at a very high level and offers our children the opportunity to experience many different sports through links such as Featherstone Sports Partnerships, Trail Finders Rugby Club etc. We competed in a wide variety of sports, such as football, netball, rugby, athletics, basketball, handball and multi-skills to name but a few. We have also entered A and B teams in many of these events.
The School qualified for the London Youth Games at Crystal Palace in basketball and finished 5th in the whole of London only losing out in a shoot-out.
This is a fantastic achievement, and congratulations to all pupils and the staff for their huge enthusiasm towards sport. We must also thank Mr Behzadi for his tireless efforts in promoting sport and sporting values across the school.
