SCHOOL GAMES GOLD STANDARD AWARD
Following another very successful sporting year, we are delighted to announce that we have again achieved the School Games Gold award.
This is in recognition of our fantastic extra-curricular PE and sport program and our students’ positive engagement with the sporting opportunities on offer.
The School Games Mark is a Government-led award scheme launched in 2012, facilitated by the Youth Sport Trust to reward schools for their commitment to the development of competition across their school and into the community, and we are delighted to have been recognised for our success.
We would like to thank the PE staff for their commitment to providing such a rich set of sporting opportunities and experiences for our students and giving up their time to nurture talent and instil a love of sport.
Over the last two weeks’ our Year 10 boys’ football team have competed in two finals where they have displayed many of our school values. Having technically been the better team, dominating the game and showing the resilience to come back from two goals down against Garforth, it was heartbreaking to watch them lose on penalties at the South Leeds Stadium before half-term.
However, we couldn’t have been more proud of how they put this disappointment behind them and how they responded so positively to their defeat in their following match at Elland Road where they faced Wetherby School in their second final of the season – the U15 Leeds City Cup. Following a spirited first half, IGS came back from 2-1 down to win by 5 goals to 2, displaying not only their footballing talent and work ethic but also resilience, discipline and pride.
Congratulations to the whole team and to the Year 7 and 9 teams who also won their finals and have been a credit to the school.
Congratulations to the PE department and all the students at IGS for competing in local inter-school competitions this year.
We are extremely proud of our pupils for their dedication to all aspects of school sport, including those young volunteers, leaders and officials who made our competitions possible.
