SSSA Dodgeball Tournament
On Wednesday 21st and Thursday 22nd November, Carew Academy organised the first ever Surrey Special Schools Association dodgeball competition involving over 300 pupils across the 2 days. Carew took 4 teams to the event and it was fantastic opportunity for the pupils to apply the skills that they have been learning at dodgeball club this term.

KS4 Team A Report:
It was an extremely successful day for the Carew boys in the first SSSA dodgeball competition that was held at Guildford Spectrum.
Team A was victorious winning the overall tournament! They played both Chartwood School & Canbury School twice in the group stages winning all of their games. With a clean sweep, this meant the boys would progress into the quarter final stages where they had to play Chartwood, Canbury, Wandle Valley, Newbarn, Wishmore, Nightingale and Bensham Manor.
The quarter final stages did not phase the team as they once again blitzed through their games winning them all bar one tough game against a good Bensham Manor team.
With the highest tally of points, the team Carew secured their place in the semi-final where they would face a Newbarn team which they had already beaten in the quarter final stages. Would the nerves get to the team? NO CHANCE AT ALL! A comfortable win under 1 minute meant they boys would go home with at least a silver medal.
After a long day of dodgeball and after 12 games it was finally the final and we were up against Bensham Manor, who we had previously lost to in the quarter final stages. It was always going to be a tough game but not too tough for the determined Carew team who managed to get over the final hurdle and win the game!
Congratulations to the boys who were victorious on bringing home yet another trophy for team Carew!
KS4 Team B Report
This was the first time that Carew Academy have organised a Surrey Special Schools Association event and we had over 300 pupils attend during Wednesday and Thursday for Dodgeball.It was an amazing experience for so many SEN students within Surrey.
Our team consisted of 6 students from Accra, Paris and Reykjavik classes:
|1. AM (Reykjavik)||2. II (Reykjavik)||3. BM (Paris)||4. PN (Paris)|
|5. TR (Reykjavik)||6. BE (Accra)|
During the morning session we played 3 matches, the students tried really hard and each match was close however we lost the morning session against some tough competition. During the afternoon the team were placed in the plate competition, they had to play 3 teams earning 3 points for a win, 2 points going to the team with most players left and 1 point for a draw. The students were better matched in the afternoon and came away with 3rd place earning them a Bronze medal in the plate. Well done to all the students who took part!
