This week we had two fun dodgeball events take place, the first event was the Hyndburn schools at Mount Carmel on Monday 2nd March, second being the Ribble Valley Event at Oakhill on Tuesday 3rd March. Leaders from both Mount Carmel and Accrington Academy helped run the events and both did a fantastic job, a huge thank you to them!
This event is ran a little differently to our usual events as this event is specifically delivered using the school games values as a focus. With the main element of the event being fun, the school teams gained points based on respect, teamwork and honesty. This meant the games were self-officiated and relied on these values to make the games fun and enjoyable. The leaders gave a maximum of 5 points to each team for both honesty and teamwork, and the opposition gave a maximum of 5 points for the respect they demonstrated when playing. To gain a top 3 place all the points awarded for each game where added up for an overall team points score.
The top three schools for each event that demonstrated excellent sportsmanship & school values in all their games were…
1st. Mount Pleasant A
2nd St Marys Oswaldtwistle
3rd Benjamin Hargreaves

1st Oakhill A
