Sprinting Through Physical Education 23/11/20
This half term kicked off with some sunshine, allowing students to go outside and run cross country. The Borough Cross Country is being run virtually this year with all students competing in lessons and having their times recorded and emitted. At Rosedale College, we consider ourselves lucky to have plenty of space for students to run over different terrains, travelling over hills and mounds and sloshing through mud. Some impressive times were set: Summayah Ahmed in Year 7 ran 2km in 10.04 seconds, Jasmine Gelly in Year 9 ran 2.5km in 14.56 seconds, and Seyfu Tesfay set an incredible record for 3km with a time of 14.10 seconds. Well done to you all!
We continue working towards our sports hall Athletics times and distances, with the top 5 entries being entered for the London Youth Games in December.
Going forward, we are excited to announce that we will be starting a sports council for Year 7, 8 and 9 students. This is a fantastic opportunity for any sports enthusiasts to try their hand at organising Alliance challenges, leading and organising team fixtures and generally being a good role model for Physical Education (PE) around the College. Watch this space for how to apply!
