FunKey Friday 06/10/17
As a reward for the ongoing hard word and effort of our many Key to Success holders, staff at the academy plan a series of rewards events throughout the year. These are known as the "Fun-Key Friday" events. The first Fun-Key Friday event this year was a sporting endeavour, pitting staff vs students.
The men battled each other in a football match. The students were in a confident mood after last year's fixture, and the newly moved football pitch laid the foundations to what was to be an enthralling encounter. The students started strong with lots of energy and high tempo movement, however, it didn't take long for the staffs' experience to come through with Mr Hicks hitting a brace to take the staff into a 4-0 lead at halftime. The second half saw much of the same with lots of energy from the students, but ultimately no end product. The final scoreline ended with a 9-1 win to the staff. Despite the score, the students should be proud of their attitude throughout, never giving up and playing with respect and sportsmanship for the entirety of the match.
The ladies competed in our first ever trampolining competition. The competition consisted of three rounds: the first was a skills based round which demonstrated aerial shapes and twists, the second round involved seat landings and swivel hips, and lastly the third round saw the staff take on the students in a free style round. The ending result was 12-6 to the staff. Although once again, the students should very proud of the talent which shone through during the heated battle.
Can staff retain their title next year? Only time will tell.
