Judo competition at Rose Hill
In addition to pupils from Rose Hill School, a number of children from Holmewood House, Yardley Court, Derwent Lodge, Somerhill Pre Prep and many local Primary Schools attended.
Key Stage1 children shrugged off nervousness with an organised warm up, this involved a few physical games and a reminder of the Judo words that the referees would be using throughout the day. Contests started on time and the children were trying their hardest to grip and off balance each other to create scoring opportunities. Many of the children brought an entourage of family support, which was great to see. Contest etiquette and many core values of the Olympic Sport were evident, respect, courage, determination and technical skills were on display during the day.
Older children were in action as the day progressed, everyone digging deep to try and apply techniques, that they learn and practice each week in their classes. At the end of each group, there was a medal ceremony and an opportunity for parents to take photographs.
The final groups of the day were all girls. A little fewer than 50 girls of Key Stage 2 and 3 were scheduled to compete and although there were a small number that couldn’t make it for different reasons, it was a compelling end to a tremendous day of Judo.
Gold Medals were won by George and Thomas
Silver Medal was won by Tom
Bronze Medals were won by Bertie, William, Emmeline, Hugo, Rafferty, Henry and Christabel.
