Rayong Football Tournament

Patana Primary Footballers Support St Andrews, Rayong

ONE DAY, ONE GOAL Charity Event

On Saturday  24th September an intrepid coach load of 31 students from Year 4 and 5 set off at 5.45am to play in the St Andrews, Rayong ONE DAY , ONE GOAL Charity 5-a-Side Football Tournament. We had representing teams in the U’9 boys and girls tournaments and had also taken the gamble entering our Year 5 teams into the boys and girls U’11 tournaments. It was great to have the opportunity to play many schools that we don’t normally get to play and the atmosphere was certainly in the “friendly” tournament bracket which was just the way our teams approached it.

Many of our U’9 boys were enjoying their first opportunity to wear the Patana colours and certainly grew into them as the day progressed. Over their 5 matches they managed to score an impressive 18 goals whilst only conceding 2 on the way to a memorable tournament win. Mr. Chris was hot on his squad rotation and everyone played their part in a very enjoyable day.

Our U’9 girls were in the same boat as the boys and it was great to be able invite all of our Year 4 girls who attend our Thursday ECA to play. Due to some teams dropping out at the last minute the girls played in a round robin format with 4 other teams scoring 13 goals and conceding just 1 on their way to being crowned tournament champions too. Miss Michelle and the parents were left feeling very proud of a young team bursting with confidence by the end of their day.

Our Year 5 Boys were certainly not fazed by the prospect of playing in the U’11 tournament and played every match with a great team ethic. The teams’ passing and spatial awareness ensured that defences were hard pressed to contain the boys as they won all six of their games scoring 22 goals and conceding none on their way to a tournament win. I was certainly delighted by the boys’ positive attitude to each other and the opposition as I am sure their parent were too.

Our Year 5 girls were missing a few regulars for their daunting challenge in their U’11 tournament but all of the girls raised their games with some great individual and team performances during the day. The girls had progressed to the final undefeated in their previous three matches, and went onto record a narrow 0-1 loss. They certainly deserved their Silver medals from their day with 8 goals scored and only 2 conceded and Miss Fiona was very pleased with everyone’s improving football during the tournament.

A huge thank you to all of the staff at St Andrews for making us feel so welcome and to the coaches who made the trip possible. Thanks also to our supportive parents and of course to all of the students who played great football with an even greater positive attitude.

Gooo Patana!!!!!!

Aquathlon 2011

Primary Aquathloners Splash and Run Their Way to Personal Success

“All of us went through obstacles, but in the end we all achieved our goals”

Louise Velayo 6G

It’s hard to believe that another year has passed since our last Aquathlon, one of our favourite events in the PE Department and it certainly comes around fast.  2011 was another exceptional year with a huge turnout of students, all fresh faced and eager to go, it’s always great to see their enthusiasm and determination as they strive to achieve individual goals, distances and times.

The Aquathlon consists of two sections, a distance swim followed by a run. The students work in pairs, whilst one is participating, their partner helps them by recording distances, cheering them on and helping them change from their swimming kit to their running gear, which is always a bit tricky when you are soaking wet and tired!  It’s always encouraging to see how much the students assist and motivate each other.

The event splashed off with our year 5 and 6 students who are seasoned professionals by now.  Although the emphasis of the Aquathlon is on participation and enjoyment the year 5 and 6 students get the opportunity to take things a little bit more seriously as they have the option of entering the competitive event which takes place in the 50m pool.  The atmosphere here is far more serious as tactics are discussed and students compete against each other for the fastest times.

On Tuesday it was the turn of our year 3 and 4 students.  Here the emphasis is more on an individual level as each student is encouraged to set their own personal goals, such as swimming a particular stroke or running that extra lap.  Once again, it was great to see some fantastic swimming and courageous running from our year 3 students, participating in this event for the first time.

Finally, a big thank you to those parents and staff that came along to support the students, especially those that took part. Remember to keep an eye on the notice board as the competitive times will be posted soon!

Aquathlon 2012 is just around the corner so keep practising!

Well done everyone.

Basketball Bonanza 2011

Last updated: Monday, September 12, 2011


The Primary sporting calendar kicked off to a fantastic start last week with our now annual Basketball Bonanza.  All students from years 5 and 6 who have signed up for our Tuesday basketball ECA were invited to get together for a hands on ball introduction to what we are working towards during the term.  It was great to see so much enthusiasm and talent on display as over 80 students participated, playing lots of fun games with and against their friends. 

A huge thank you to all of the children who accepted the challenge and to the many parents who came to support.  We hope to see everybody taking the chance to enjoy a little extra practice during their break and lunchtimes on the back hard court! 

We’re certainly looking forward to a great term ahead!
