At Stella Maris our pupils learn that sports and games are a fun, worthwhile activity. They enjoy a wide range of different activities and are given the opportunity to take part in at least two hours of physical education every week. Activities are designed to teach a range of skills and to help them develop an excellent team spirit.
After school clubs, depending on the time of year, include football, netball, cricket and tag rugby.
We participate in as many inter-school competitions as we can, with considerable success. Last year our cricket team won the Folkestone Town Council Kwik Cricket tournament for the second year in succession, and our football team reached the semi-finals of the Herald Cup.
Sports Day is one of the highlights of our school year. The children compete in a range of traditional races, from the Long Distance race to the Egg and Spoon Race, and points are awarded to the first three places. Each year the winning team is celebrated at assembly, with trophies awarded for the sprints and the long distance races.
Kwik Cricket - 30th September 2021
Well done to our team of 8 KS2 children who took part in a Kwik Cricket competition at the Three Hills on Thursday 30th September. This was the first competition that we had been part of for many months due to Covid so it was great to get out and compete against other schools. Our team did a fantastic job representing the school showing all our school values, especially respect, when playing other teams. They came 4th place and were very proud of the medals that they received. Well done!
