This week 15 teams came along to take part in an extremely fun dogdeball event held at Oakhill College. The focus of this event was no longer based upon the principles of competition, the focus was to ensure the children have fun and enjoy taking part. The event measured the children’s values such as Respect, Teamwork & Honesty. Sports leaders from Oakhill College assisted with refereeing the games as well as scoring each team for the values they demonstrated when playing each other. In doing this it created a non competitive environment that the children thoroughly enjoyed.At the end of the event the points for the 3 values were added up and the top three positions received medals.Well done to all the children that took part, we hope that this event encourages the children to apply these principles when taking part in other sports.
