CROSS COUNTRY TUESDAY NOVEMBER 12TH 2013
On Tuesday November 12th 2013, 9 athletes left Corpus Christi with high hopes and expectations of having a great run in the park and they didn’t disappoint. The competition which attracts over 440 pupils from schools all over Kingston took place at Richmond park, Kingston gate. The Girls that took part for Corpus Christi were Rosa Boyd, Ines Agurja, Jessica Abul-ahad and Sarah Mc Evoy. These girls ran the races of their lives in terrible conditions and did the school really proud as they all finished in the top 120 out of 220 girls which is fantastic. Next up were the boys and having completed this same course two years ago in year 4 Ben Elliott was quietly confident. He came 8th that day so a medal was definitely on the cards. The boys team was made up of Ben Elliott, Jamal Musiala, Jayden Garner, Jakob Kozowski and Nolan Iweun. The boys race also had up on 220 children and after the first 300 meters Ben and Jamal were in 1st and 2nd place respectively. We waited with anticipation at the finish line to see our boys come home. As the runners entered the final 300meters Ben was in third place and held on to collect the school’s first ever individual medal in this event. As a team we were so close to getting a medal. A wonderful run from Jamal saw him finish in 6th place, Jayden who has still one more year at this grade finished in 12th and is definitely one for next year. Jakob and Nolan both ran a gallant race and finished inside the top 120 also. It was a great experience for all the children and they all vowed to keep their running going all year round to help them in future races. Wonderful attitudes from extraordinary pupils. Well done boys and girls, we are very proud. Finally I would like to thank all the parents that came and helped on the day and to cheer on the children.
Yours Kindly, Mr Mc Cabe

On Monday 4th November, children from years 3 and 4 participated in ‘The Richard Challoner Basketball Cup’ as part of Richard Challoner School’s Sports Partnership.
The team competed against two other local primary schools in a highly competitive event and the children were in buoyant mood upon arrival, quickly settling into their warm up routine with coaches Mr Sheehan and Mr Wicks. The tournament was organised that each school had two teams of 4 competing in two groups, the winners of which would progress to the final of the tournament.
Corpus Christi started with great energy and both teams managed to win their groups, setting up an all Corpus Christi final! The teams showed why they deserved to be there with some brilliant baskets scored from both sides and won the tournament overall.
The children really enjoyed the day and a big thank you is owed to Richard Challoner School for holding the event.

SURREY SCHOOLS FA ROUND 1
CORPUS CHRISTI RC PRIMARY SCHOOL 14 – 1 WESTBOURNE PRIMARY SCHOOL
After great success last year in retaining the Premier League Schools Tournament Trophy at Anfield, as well as winning the Npower League One Kids Cup at Wembley Stadium, the school football team is ready for another season.
With a new look team, Corpus Christi were as impressive as ever in their opening fixture of the season.
The team were competing in the Dorothy Bailey Rose Bowl Cup, a 9 a-side football tournament organised by The Surrey Schools Football Association. The team travelled to Westbourne Primary School in Sutton and were in a confident mood prior to kick off following weekly training sessions with coaches Mr Wicks and Mr Sheehan.
The boys started the game with great purpose and enthusiasm. Straight from kick off, Captain Ben Elliot sprung into action, carving his way through the Westbourne midfield before laying an inch perfect pass into the path of Jamal on the left wing. Using his blistering pace, Jamal burst into the opposition penalty area and chipped the ball to lone striker Ethan Etukudo, who confidently controlled the ball before acrobatically volleying the ball high into the net with an over-head kick! The boys quickly added to the score line, going 3-0 up in a matter of minutes after goals from Ethan and Jamal. Captain Ben Elliot continued to dominate the midfield area and control the game and opened his tally with a right foot shot.
Ethan then completed his hat trick with a fierce strike from just outside the penalty area. Westbourne continued to press and finally got their reward from a corner which was tidily finished. Corpus Christi responded quickly and Ben scored his second of the game putting Corpus Christi 6-1 up at half time.
The boys started the second half in the same manner as the first, with Jamal scoring two goals in quick succession to complete his hat trick. Ben then capped off a terrific performance with two goals of his own to put Corpus Christi 10-1 up. The boys rounded off an excellent display with goals from Ben Blunt (pen), Sung Jae, Ellis and Nolan to finish the match 14-1.
At the end of the game both schools showed fantastic sportsmanship by shaking hands and congratulating each other on a hard fought contest.
Corpus Christi now advance to the quarter finals of the tournament.
Team: Vincent, Tae Woo, Nolan, Ben E, Ben B, Ellis, Ethan, Jamal, Jakub, Thomas, Sung Jae

SWIMMING GALA RESULTS
On Tuesday 22nd October, Corpus Christi participated in the annual swimming gala as part of the Kingston Schools Sports Partnership. The event was held at The Malden Centre and there was a large turnout with 18 schools competing!
The event was organised into girls and boys races, where each team competed in:
- Boys front crawl, back stroke, breast stroke and relay.
- Girls front crawl, back stroke, breast stroke and relay.
The team performed exceptionally well on the day with the boys finishing 2nd in their relay event and winning their silver medals. The girls relay team were up against fierce competition in their qualifying round and narrowly missed out on a place in the finals finishing 3rd in their qualifying event.
Eoin Forrest added to his relay medal with bronze in the boys backstroke final.
There were points awarded for placing in each race and once the scores were in Corpus Christi finished the whole event in joint 5th place. An excellent achievement for the team!
The team were extremely positive and supportive to each other and to all of the other schools competing and due to this, were rewarded with the ‘WREN TROPHY’ for encouragement, support and sportsmanship. A fantastic award to round off a great event!
Congratulations to the team:
Rosa, Emily S, Emily F, Robyn, Ines, Isobelle, Elise-Marie, Emanuele, Karl, Dominic and Eoin

OUR TRIUMPHANT FOOTBALL TEAM!
The team representing Brentford FC overcame their opponents Chetwynd Junior School (representing Coventry City FC) 2-0 on penalties following a 1-1 draw. It was a hard fought match and the boys had to fight back when they went a goal down during the second half.
Following the match the team climbed the stairs to Wembley’s Royal Box and were presented with their medals and the winners trophy.
CONGRATULATIONS TO OUR PREMIER LEAGUE CHAMPIONS!
Corpus Christi, representing Fulham, were back to defend the title they won last at Arsenal’s Emirates Stadium. Winning all four matches in Group D they had scored 18 goals and conceded none. In the last four they faced Everton’s Farnborough Road Junior School, who had won the title two years ago, when representing Liverpool, and also had a 100% record in the group stage.
Corpus Christi blew them away with a 3-0 win to advance to the final to meet Swansea City, represented by Hendrefoilan Primary School. If we were the favourites, Swansea had not read the script as they stunned us with a goal within five seconds of the kick-off.
We recovered and began to dominate but it was not until the last five minutes that the boys turned it around. Jamal equalised with his eighth goal of the finals, earning him a trophy as leading scorer, and soon after Ben, who played last year, scored what proved to be the winning goal.
“Once the second goal went in I knew we had won,” said Jordan, who was also at the Emirates Stadium. “It feels better than last year, especially with the new trophy, which looks cool. We had more experience. I was just excited.”
Mr M said “This year was harder because of the expectation after winning last year, especially having brought up so many supporters today. The early goal was a shock to the system, especially in a 10-minute game. But we got one and thankfully the second followed. This has put the school on the map and gets more people involved in football there, which is what it is all about.”
OUR FOOTBALL TEAM REACH THE ‘NPOWER’ LEAGUE ONE KIDS CUP FINAL
Our football team has been crowned npower League One Kids Cup South Winners and will now take on the Northern Winners, a school representing Coventry City, before the League One Play-off Final at Wembley Stadium on May 19.
The team won the right to represent Brentford by beating Little Ealing Primary School in the final of the area tournament organised by Brentford FC Community Sports Trust back in January. Then on March 21 the team travelled to Crawley Town FC for the regional finals.
The players took on teams from Swindon Town, Colchester United, Leyton Orient, Milton Keynes Dons and Crawley to win their way through to the final. In the final they beat Portsmouth 2-0 and took the title of Southern Champions.
Mr M, said: “The boys worked so hard and played so well with skilful build-up play leading to spectacular goals. It will be fantastic for them to play at Wembley and realise every footballers’ dream.”
