South West State School Rugby Championships

U14 rugby teamOn Thursday 21st April our U14 Rugby team travelled to Bristol University to compete in the final of the South West State School tournament against Richard Lander School from Cornwall. After a very long season in which the team has won both West Oxfordshire and Oxfordshire County Cups, the boys were very excited at being the first Chipping Norton team to represent the school at this level of competition.

It was an extremely tough match against the school from Truro, who were bidding to be the first team to win the trophy on two separate occasions. Little did we know that they had only lost one match in three years which was in the semi-final of a national competition at Under 13s.

Chipping Norton started slowly conceding early tries which meant their heads went down. As they slowly grew into the game confidence increased and it was becoming a more even contest. There was plenty of action in both halves of the pitch throughout the rest of the game before the referee finally blew time. The final score was 55 points to 14. CNS tries came through Stan Norman and fly half James Ingham, who also added 2 conversions.

In what was a slightly disappointing end to the season the boys can be very proud of their efforts and quality of their play this year winning the district, county and three counties competitions. At the post-match meal and trophy award ceremony, captain Stan Norman paid tribute to Richard Lander School on their victory, thanked all the officials, organisers and parents for their support and told the Chipping Norton team that they should learn from this experience before starting their season again next September.

Year 2 & 3 Schoolympics

yr23 schoolympicsSchoolympics at Chipping Norton School is one of our biggest events, with approximately 480 Year 2 & 3 pupils coming along to take part over two festivals. The event is run by Year 12 Sports Leaders, who spend weeks planning their workshops.

As schools arrived they were split into European countries, giving them an opportunity to meet other children from different schools. The Year 12s then took their group off and started to get to know them by teaching them a chant. The pupils really enjoyed the opportunity to shout out their team chant, and making the noise level go up dramatically.

The Year 12 Leaders led the pupils through various athletic activities such as speed bounce, throwing and catching games and obstacle courses. They finished with a range of alternative activities including parachute and sleeping lions. This festival takes a lot of planning and hard work, and everyone involved spends a lot of time working towards it. Congratulations to everyone, you have all worked very hard.
