LIVE Cricket Competitions

After a year of virtual competitions and challenges Staffordshire University Academy School Games have been delighted to finally put on some LIVE events to give children a chance to compete in face to face competition. Since half term we have seen close to 100 children compete in cricket competitions at Cannock Cricket Club and the smiles on their faces have been great to see. A big thank you to Cannock Cricket club for hosting the events and a massive well done to all the children who took part.

February 2021 – Year 3 / 4 LIVE Multi Skills Competition

During lockdown SGO’s from Cannock and Rugeley, Lichfield and Tamworth have combined to run a LIVE virtual multi skills competition for children to take part in from inside their schools. SGO’s led three different multi skills events in two semi-final competitions which children completed and then scored themselves. As a result, three schools qualified for the final where they took part in another three activities. Well done to all the schools and their pupils who took part and CONGRATULATIONS to our winning school – The John Bamford Primary School from Cannock and Rugeley!
