Welcome to the website for Bowmandale Primary School. I hope that this site gives you a good insight into our school and demonstrates our commitment to creating a safe, positive and rewarding environment in which our pupils can learn and grow.

We have high hopes for all our pupils and it is important to us that children enjoy the time they spend here. Our aim is to provide a positive, nurturing learning environment for all children to enable them to achieve their potential and be the best that they can be. We want them to have the best possible start in life and help them to acquire the skills, knowledge, understanding and ambition to prepare them for life beyond the classroom. We want all of our children to achieve their very best.

On Thursday 13th of July the year six pupils attended Costello Stadium to participate in various events. This included 100m, 400m 800m and relay, and there were several different stations that included: skipping, egg and spoon, long jump and many more. We are glad to say that most of the Bowmandale competitors won in the track events. After all, Bowmandale won again for the second time running. Well done Bowmandale!

Team Challenge

On Tuesday 4th July, the whole school took part in a brilliant event called Team Challenge where all the house teams were split into three teams: A, B and C. Some of our favourite games were Penalty Shootout, Limbo Limbo, Wet Sponge Relay, Whose Shoes and Over and Under.

At the wet sponge relay, we lined up and when the whistle blew we got a very wet sponge and ran to squeeze out water to get points. At the netball shootout, we stood and we threw a basketball at a net and we tried to score. Whose Shoes was where we had to guess whose shoes they were and match the name cards beside the shoes.

We all had an exciting time seeing our parents watching us do amazing challenges.
