Mini Hockey Tournament - Thursday 17th October
 
Having 16 very dedicated children attend hockey club for the past 5 weeks  we decided to finish the term with a mini tournament to showcase their skills to their parents.  4 teams on the evening included a Fairview Blue team, Fairview Black team, Mierscourt School and a team from Anchorians Hockey Club.  The teams all played each other in 8 minute games.  Thank you to all the children for their enthusiasm and to the parents for transporting them to Anchorians every week.
Medway Schools Cross Country League - race 2 - Wednesday 16th October
 
In wet conditions and only a week after their exploits at Kingfisher School, 20 children made the shorter trip to Thamesview to compete on a flatter but longer course. The children again were a credit to the school with their drive and determination with both the boys and girls team results being in the top 5 schools. Stand out performances go to Eva and Daniel who finished 3rd and 4th respectively.
 

Mini Youth Games Hockey- Tuesday 15th October
 
Well done to  Esta, Eva, Mimi, Sophie, Dexter, Isaac, Oliver P, Olly and Toby who represented Fairview in the 49 school competition. The children performed admirably and were great ambassadors for the school. In an extremely difficult group they achieved a record of 3 wins, 3 draws and 2 loses (both by the closest of 1-0 margins), scoring 14 goals and only conceding 6, the highlight being a 5-1 win against a strong Cliffe Woods team. These excellent results saw Fairview place 10th, narrowly missing out on qualification for the Medway 'Night of Champions' 

 

PTFA Thank You.

The PE staff and children would like to thank the PTFA for their kind generosity in supplying us with 15 team rain jackets - 12 for the children and 3 for staff.  The children looked super smart at the MYG competition this week and I know all the children were proud to be wearing them.  Thank you.
 

Year 3/4 Tri-Golf Festival - 3rd October

Our Tri-Golf team participated in the first Tri Golf festival of the year on Thursday, they did fantastically well and came 11th overall.

Report by Teddy:

On Thursday I took place in the Tri-Golf Festival at the Howard School. We got to compete against other schools in Medway.

My favourite part was chipping the ball over the bench and into the bucket.

Everyone tried their best throughout the morning.

I really enjoyed going to the Tri-Golf after school after school club and learning different skills about golf.

Mrs Sheppard - Run Disney Experience - October 2019

Thank you Fairview Mile -  part 3

 Just last month I was lucky enough to go on my 3rd  run Disney weekend at Disneyland Paris, where, along with my husband, I enjoyed taking part in their Friday night 5k, the Saturday morning 10k, and the Sunday morning half marathon (21k). What a privilege to run through the theme parks (and for the half marathon also into the local community) with about 9,000 runners in each race.

 

3 years ago when the Fairview Mile was introduced I was a reluctant participant, who along with many in my class, needed to run/walk  the mile until I gradually built up my stamina to be able to run the whole mile. I then discovered I enjoyed running, joined the local parkrun … and kept running.  This year training didn’t go as smoothly as I’d hoped, but working through injuries to complete the 3 races and the 36k Challenge left me with a greater sense of achievement, as I’d experienced bad times as well as good times.

 

Thank you again Fairview Mile for helping me to become fitter and healthier; and for the new memories I made that weekend.

Fairview is the first school in Medway to sign up to a commitment for every child to walk / run a mile each week. Here are some pictures from our first week.
