Beacon of Light activity morning for Years 3 and 4

Year 3 and 4 boys and girls were invited to the Beacon of Light on Tuesday, where they took part in a carousel of activities before being shown around the impressive facilities on offer there.

The children had a great time taking part in football, volleyball, tag, javelin, tennis and dodgeball, with the teachers and teaching assistants also getting themselves involved in the action.

Our partnership with Sunderland AFC will ensure that each year group will be offered a chance to see the wonderful complex beside the Stadium of Light, with various competitions also scheduled to take place there over the course of the academic year.

Well done to everyone who took part in a wonderful morning.

St. James girls off and running in football for 2018/19

St. James girls took part in a festival of football at the Beacon of Light on Wednesday, playing five games against some very strong teams from across Tyne and Wear.

The state of the art facilities beside Sunderland’s Stadium of Light are very impressive indeed, as was some of the football produced on the day from the girls. Four of the squad were spotted by the Sunderland scouts too, giving them a chance to put their skills to the test in the Player Development Programmes. Well done girls.

It has been great to see the interest in girls’ football growing in the past year at St. James. Here’s to another successful year girls.
