Athelites

Who We Are

We are a group of 32 active and agile Athelites. Our role is to keep the school up-to-date with sporting achievements and create new sporting initiaties.

What We Do

We meet once a week to plan different sporting events and occasions, teamed with making new activities for PE lessons. We discuss historical sporting events and great sporting moments and the importance of physical education at our school to create future sports stars and a healthy population. As Athelites we are striving to be fitter and stronger and we collaborate with each other to encourage this idea in the rest of the school.

I would like to represent the school by being an Athlete so that I can raise money for the field to make more equipment and help in sports events. I would also like to keep the school clean. The previous event was named goalathon. It is when you have a choice of scoring as many goals in football or as many baskets in basketball.

I am very glad to be an athlete because I love sports. Also I enjoy encouraging people to participate in athletics. My dream is to help the school with fundraising for sports .As I have helped Churchfields School with Goalathon. I decided to become an athlete to help people enjoy sports.

I wanted to join Athlete Because I wanted to make the school healthy and help raise money for the school and I like sport and games like football, basketball and dodgeball. I want us to raise money by having another mile run and your family and friends can sponsor you for charity.

ST

I represent the school by being an athlete. My opinion of being an athlete is because I want to help and fundraise for equipment and make the field more enjoyable. Also I want more people to get involved in sport. My other opinion would be to create individual space for different sports such as: football, rugby, basketball, golf etc. So far we have raised money for the event Goalathon. Goalathon was an event where you try and score as many goals or as many baskets in basketball or football. Over the year we will try to do more events.

I wanted to join Athletes because it looked very fun and interesting. Another reason I wanted to join Athletes is because I like helping fundraise and exciting events in the school and help with any problems that need solving or need help with any fund raising or support. You are worthy to be an athlete if you like sports and fun games. I like playing lots of games as cricket, football, table tennis and tennis. I also enjoy joining in with the fun P.E activities. I liked the Goalathon that the athletes hosted in P.E lessons. I would also like to help raise more money for the sports equipment.

I like being an athlete because I like sports. Football, tennis and ping-pong are my favourite sports. As an athlete, I want pupils in our school to play and take part in different sports. I like raising money for our school. All the money we raise will go to the field. In our school lots of pupils enjoy sports, such as, football, netball, hockey and many others. We can also buy new equipment for our field. We can have many more P.E lessons and better P.E. lessons. I want children to be healthy and active instead of lying on the sofa at home and playing video games they should play some sports like football, tennis or netball. We could buy new equipment to use in our P.E. lessons.
