Rother World Cup of Nations

On Wednesday, 13th November, 16 students (2 squads of 8) from year 9 and year 7 attended the Rother World Cup of Nations, organised by Rotherham United Community Sports Trust. Along with 2 teams from Winterhill School and 2 teams from Clifton Academy they competed for the chance to play the final of the tournament at the New York Stadium during the half time interval of Rotherham's fixture against Accrington on Saturday. Despite both our teams reaching the semi-finals having finished second and fourth in the group stage they were defeated in both games. It was a great effort from all the students who enjoyed the day despite the disappointing result.



Thanks to all staff who attended the plate cup finals on Wednesday. The students all represented the school brilliantly and deserve the success they had. All three of our year groups won. The results were;

Y8 won 7-3 against Maltby.

Y9 won 2-0 on penalties against Rawmarsh after drawing 2-2 in normal time.

Y10 won 4-3 against Wingfield.

Very well done boys!

Well done Miya!

The football season started for St Pius X last night with the Year 8 and Year 10's taking on Thrybergh Academy. The Year 10's managed to record a 6-0 victory and the Year 8's contributed to a see-saw game with the lead changing hands on a number of occasions, finally ending 5-5. Well played St Pius X.

The Cricket season is underway after the poor weather with both the Y8 and Y10 teams competing in cup fixtures this week.

The Y8's hosted Rawmarsh and unfortunately came out second best in a competitive game. There was a great effort from all players with some playing their first ever game of cricket, and a notable contributions from Rocco Campagna (7W) and William Pleasants (8L) with both the bat and ball.

The Y10's travelled to Winterhill with a depleted team and despite a great effort from those players who made the trip they failed to progress to the next round.

Max Peart (7 Walsingham) attended the World Championships in Florida last week representing Team England in Multi Skilled Martial Arts.
Max has been doing Martial Arts since he was 5 and has been a Black Belt since he was 10. He is now training for his 2nd Dan which he should receive in December and also is a Junior Instructor at his Martial Arts school in Balby, Doncaster.
In his forms routine he came 6th out of 12, which is a great achievement.
Hopefully he will get the chance to qualify to be on the world’s stage next year.
He has had an amazing year with his martial arts and Max’s parents would like to thank Saint Pius for allowing him the time off to attend this amazing event.
