Pupils v Teachers football match!

The drizzly rain and freezing cold temperatures on Friday afternoon didn’t dampen any spirits at the latest pupils v teachers football game at Carew Academy.

As the players took to their positions on the pitch, pupils lined up at the sides eager to cheer on their peers, or for some (a vast minority!), their favourite teachers.

It was a great start for the pupils’ team who scored within the first few minutes, however the teachers were keen not to be taken down and soon scored two goals. Due to the high number of pupils wanting to take part, a half-time switch of teams brought a newly energised team to the game, and the pupils evened the score just in time, ending in a 2-2 draw.

As pupils shook hands with their opponents and walked off the pitch full of energy, teachers lagged behind with one, who shall remain anonymous, muttering “I’m too old for this…”.

Well done everyone, let’s see who wins the next match!

Carew is an amazing school for our son, he now shines academically and his social skills are outstanding since being part of Carew.  Most of all they understand his needs and support him daily.
