In difficult conditions, with rain lashing down, Peter Gladwin quickly found their groove and showed incredible team-work, quick thinking and determination.

Tag Rugby Festival
On Thursday 17th October, 12 children from Year 5 & 6 took part in a tag rugby festival at Cardinal Newman school. For lots of these children, it was the first time playing tag rugby and even the first time representing the school. The children all had an excellent time. Not only did they improve their tag rugby skills but they were able to gain positive experiences from participating in sporting events. They had to battle through some torrential rain but that didn't deter them! 
The children finished the day playing 3 games against other schools. We ended with a very respectable 1 win, 1 draw and 1 loss! Well done all those children who took part.
On Thursday 9th May, 10 children from years 3 & 4 went to Blatchington Mill Secondary School to take part in a Tri Gold competition.

 On Friday 23rd November, the PGS football team took on St Peters school. After a disappointing result against Hangleton in the first game of the season, it was great to see the children get a positive result this time round, beating St Peters 2-0.

Well done PGS footballers! 

Y5/6 Waterhall Cross Country

On Wednesday 21st November, children from Years 5 & 6 took part in the annual primary schools cross country event at Waterhall, Brighton. Each race consisted of approximately 350 runners. It was a cold and muddy afternoon but this did not deter our resilient children who all persevered to the very end. All of the children who took part were an absolute credit to the school and added to the recent success that we have had in running. A special mention to Ethan, who WON the Year 5 Boys race 'by a country mile' as Mrs Bailey said. Ethan will have the opportunity to take part in the county finals later in the year. Thank you also to Mrs Bailey and Mrs Burgess who accompanied the children on the day.

On Thursday 11th October, Peter Gladwin played their first football match of the new season. This came after only four weeks of training together. They played against a very good team in Hangleton, who have been playing together for the past three years. 

The final result ended Hangleton 5 - 0 Peter Gladwin. However, the score line didn't reflect the game. As the game progressed, Peter Gladwin became more competitive and produced some excellent moments of passing. Although we started with defeat, all of the children who were involved worked incredibly hard, were resilient and listened well to advice given. Onward and upward Peter Gladwin!

Tag Rugby Festival 3rd October

On Wednesday 3rd October 12 children from Y4/5/6 attended a tag rugby festival at Brighton Rugby Club, Waterhall. For most children that attended, this was the first time that they had represented the school. They all worked incredibly hard, listened well to the coaches and played well as a team. 

To begin with, the children received some coaching, which was delivered by sports leaders from Dorothy Stringer School. After this, the children played three matches against other schools. The first game ended in a narrow defeat against Benfield, losing 2-3. The second game saw the children draw 5-5 in an exciting game against St Lukes. By this point, the children were starting to show excellent progress and were putting into action things that they had learnt about earlier. In the final game, we ended up beating Whitehawk 6-1. 

It was wonderful to see so many children enjoying tag rugby, as this was a relatively new sport for many of them. Well done Peter Gladwin!
