The Rossendale School Sports competition calendar provides an opportunity for many young people to participate in competitive school sport. The calendar provides grass route competition with a performance pathway to county level competitions through the Lancashire School Games. Each competition provides an exit route with links to local clubs, NGB’s and a talent ID programme in place. Selected competitions have a ‘cultural’ element to them, with opening and closing ceremonies.

Small school athletics competition heat 6.3.17
St Peter's were winners!!!
First were the running events. Mikayla, Kate, Violet and Fern won the first obstacle relay event. Stanley, Mason, Tyler and William came second in the same event. First and second for St Peters on the first event.
The second event was running 2 laps. Girls got second this time(Gracie and Millie). The boys, Henry and Hayden came last because of a bad fall for Hayden. He was brave and still finished the race though. Good for us, it is about taking part.
Third event was running again but 4 laps. Violet and Fern raced in this event and we came first. The boys also came first like the girls thanks to Mason and Tyler. At this point I was thinking ‘we're doing really well’.
The Fourth event was the relay race, Grace, Mikayla, Kate and Millie for the girls and they came second and the boys Hayden, Henry, Stanley and William came third.
Next, the girls and the boys had to do the field events, throwing and jumping. They took part in speed bounce, triple jump, standing long jump, chest throw, javelin and a reach jump. After competing, lot of the team said they thought they were going into the final. Guess what we did!!! In the whole event we came first.

Orienteering in the Snow
Ella - Reece (Came 2nd out of 14) , Chloe (Came 3rd out of 15) and Daniel (Came 1st out of 13) were fabulous in the orienteering competition at Marl Pits even though the ground was covered in snow (28.04.16). Well done gang!
St. Peter's gave 100% effort throughout the orienteering competition at Marl Pits (28.04.16). The course was challenging and tough but the children persevered and worked hard as a team in wet, windy, cold and extremely muddy conditions. Well done Jack, Daisie, Spencer, Jess, Caitlin and Owen!
Here are 2 children's work of their Charter and Flag designs
Standing side by side,
We stand as one united,
With passion, honesty and respect,
To the games we are all invited!
With self-belief and teamwork,
You know you will give your all,
With friendship and determination,
Whether the sport is tennis or football.
Even if your black or white,
And have numbers instead of names,
You know you will be greeted here so…
Welcome to the School Games!
