We recently returned from our Annual football tour to Amsterdam. During the tour the students were provided with opportunities to develop their cultural experiences whilst also challenging their performance levels competing in an international football tournament. The tour also provided our students with further opportunities to embed the interpersonal skills being developed within their academic studies.
The Aviko Cup was a complete success with all 3 of our touring teams being successful in their respective tournaments. The year 8 team were successful in winning the U13 competition winning 9 matches and drawing 1 without conceding a single goal in the process. The year 7 team won the U13 shield winning 7 matches drawing 2 and losing 1. The year 10 team also won the U15 competition winning 9 matches and drawing 1 only conceding 1 goal in the process.
The quality of performances from all 3 teams were outstanding displaying the qualities to be successful in not just football. This was not just displayed on the pitch where the students were ambassadors for the academy throughout the whole tour. We hope the success of the tour will now translate itself into next year’s competition both domestically and the international tour.
