Pupils Enjoy Online Fixture with Sister School
King's Hall School vs King's College, Doha
Our pupils have been motivated to keep their exercise routines going by taking part in a series of competitions over the last few weeks.
After taking part in an inter-community competition towards the end of term, that included staff and parents from both King’s Hall and King’s College, along with our alumni, our latest fixture was against pupils from King’s College, Doha, in the Middle East.
The event that took place over three days and involved a series of challenges – sit ups, ball skills, and football ‘keepie uppies’, set to test fitness, stamina, and hand-eye co-ordination.
At the end of the first day we were leading, only for King’s Doha to draw level by winning the second challenge.
However, on day three the Year 6 bubble made such a brilliant contribution, with Corey M getting the highest score of the day with 61. It had been a close run thing, right to the end, but the King’s Hall pupils held on to the victory to win the series 2-1.
Ali Halls, our Director of Sport said: “The aim of the contest was to motivate our pupils to exercise, and bring the schools closer together, which it certainly achieved.”
He added: “It was really great fun for the pupils who took part, and really interesting for me watching the scores coming in live. A brilliant effort from the pupils and teachers at King's College Doha, and hopefully one day we'll be able to play a real fixture together.”
