Further events will be added to this list during the year.

It was a lovely sunny afternoon for the Keskowethyans football tournament at Grade Ruan on Friday 24th February.  
Well done to our Yr 3 & 4 team and Yr 5 & 6 players.
They came second overall.
A special mention to Michael, Edward and Reece who played for St Martin School who didn't have enough players make up a team. If they hadn't have stepped in, St Martin would not have been able to take part.
All of our players demonstrated great skill & fabulous sportsmanship. Lots of goals were scored and saved.  
Thanks  to Mr Studd for organising another great Keskowethyans competition.
Well done to the overall winners-Grade Ruan who will be playing at Mullion School in the next round.

RACE 4 held at Grade Ruan on 21st February 2017
What a miserable day it was for our 4th X-country, but it was fantastic to see so many of you turn up to run!
We started off with a Key Stage 1 fun run. The children did so well with lots of support from the older children and adults.
24 Key stage 2 pupils took part in the Keskowethyans league. The support and encouragement was a real pleasure to see. A huge thank you to the parents for your wonderful marshalling skills and to Louise for being a super photographer and guarding the muddy patch!
Many children  will receive endurance medals for completing 4 or more races.
Other medals will also be given to Year group winners!
At the moment, Grade Ruan is leading the way for most points and Coverack is leading the weighted table, which takes the school numbers into account.
Your schools have detailed results from all races.
Look forward to seeing you for our FINAL race on Tuesday 14th March at St. Keverne football field next to the school.

RACE 3 held at Manaccan on 24th January 2017
Well done to the 19 runners who took part in our 3rd Keskowethyans X country race to start off 2017. 
It was so lovely to see so many smiling faces despite the chilly breeze. You showed great determination and it looks like there will be quite a few endurance medals for those children who have run 4 or more races. It also looks like there may be children who are aiming to win all of their races!
The league tables have been sent to your schools, so you can see where you and your school stand.
Thank you once again, to  parents, grandparents and staff for your continued support. It is so lovely to hear so many positive comments!
Our next race will take part at Grade Ruan rec ground at the end of February. This will also include a KS1 fun run.
A letter will be sent out closer to the time.

You were all fabulous-great attitudes and sportsmanship, as well as some great running! It was lovely to see children from all 5 schools taking part.
A special thank you to the parents and staff members who helped with marshalling and transporting children to the event"

The Keskowethyans Hockey Tournament took place on Friday 7th October . The year 3-4 and 5-6 competition was held at Manaccan tennis courts under nice warm sunny conditions.

The players tested their skill under pressure and under the eye of the Keskowethyans referees battling their way through  108 goals over the 2 hours.

The winners of year 3-4 were Grade Ruan while Coverack years 5-6 won their age group. The final result came down to a single goal difference with Grade Ruan progressing onto the Mullion and Helston cluster event which they went on to win on Wednesday 12th October.

Grade Ruan will now progress to the Cornwall School Games final at Penair on Friday 28th April.


It was great to see so many parent supporters able to attend and enjoy watching the competition on the day.
