At Hillstone Primary school we believe that a child, who is physically active, is a happier child. The early years of a child's life builds the paving blocks to fundamental skills for future activity, developing agility, balance, coordination and sport specific skills. Sport and Physical Education promotes health and exercise and means our children will be more likely to be active adults. Not only does sport have physical benefits but it also develops their social attributes, improving their confidence, teamwork and communication skills. Sport helps to install a 'growth mind set' in children, helping them to deal with failure and mistakes and to understand that these are needed to improve and should be celebrated. Sport gives children a practical way of experiencing this.
ESPSFA Cup Winners
On Monday 2nd December, our boys football team took part in the ESPSFA Cup Final. The original final between Hillstone v The Oval was cut short prior to this, with Hillstone 2-0 up. Due to this, we started 2-0 up in the fixture on aggregate.
Although we had a 2-0 advantage from the off, we knew that the Oval would be a tough challenge, especially with their team being back to full strength as they were missing their talisman in the original fixture. With this in mind, our team needed to play at their best.
Our children did not disappoint. They were outstanding, passing and moving, defending resolutely and finishing our chances fantastically. We won the overall fixture 7-1 on aggregate.
This is the first time our team has ever won this cup. Our children were massively proud of their performance and so are all of the staff here at Hillstone.
Well done boys!!!
