Every two years the Friendship Games are contested between the twinned towns of North Tyneside. This year's games were held in Pniewy, Poland and North Tyneside competed against the host town along with representatives from Slovenia, France and Germany. The North Tyneside team consisted of ten students from Churchill Community College as well as a selection of students from other schools and colleges in the borough who are part of the Streetgames volunteer group.
The games consisted of a range of activities where the team had to demonstrate a range of physical, social and communication skills to complete the task in the quickest time possible. The group also delivered a presentation that highlighted the impact young people can have on their community.
Although North Tyneside did not win the games the group did themselves and their country proud! The trip was a huge success and the organisers commented on the group's outstanding presentation and how all members of embraced the spirit of the games.
The Year 9 football team once again attended the annual national football tournament in Blackpool. Following another hugely successful domestic campaign where the squad shared the league title the squad travelled to Blackpool full of confidence.
Although the tournament mainly consisted of established boys clubs the boys represented themselves and the college fantastically well and came runners up! Throughout the tournament the boys played some great football and demonstrated great enthusiasm and desire in very warm and testing conditions.
As part of the trip the boys also visited Old Trafford the home of current champions Manchester Utd FC, a water park and the Pleasure Beach.
