CMAT Outdoors Challenge / CMAT Athletics Festival
CMAT Outdoor Challenge 2019
All CMAT secondary schools took part in an outdoor challenge. Despite the weather, fires were lit, orienteering was run and pupils enjoyed the specially designed activities.
Joining some of our fellow Cambridge Meridian Academies Trust secondary schools, with each school entering two teams, students took on various outdoor pursuits. From making tent pegs, helping them shelter from the rain TO giving emergency CPR and keeping a casualty safe and warm, each challenge in turn was met well.
It is a VERY difficult task to make fire in the rain ... but our Ely College teams excelled, with Team A coming in 7th place out of 12 and Ely Team B coming 2nd place! Well done to all involved!
CMAT Athletic Festival 2019
A very successful Cambridge Meridian Academies Trust Athletics Festival took place with all seven secondary schools taking part and enjoying a day of competition and team work.
We love the summer term where we get more and more opportunities to get out and compete with our fellow Cambridge Meridian Academies Trust schools.
As well as the Outdoor Challenge, last week saw the PE dept take students to the 2019 CMAT Athletics Festival! Ely College students won 4 gold medals and our Year 9 team came 3rd overall in their Year category!
Well done to everyone competing, especially James, Danielle, Naomi and Edwards with their golds!
