Great week of sport


Congratulations to Junior School pupils who competed with great skill and energy in their football, netball and cross country fixtures this week.

Year 6 kicked off the sporting week with netball matches against the Senior School Year 7 squad.

The Senior School matches served as a fantastic warm-up for the St Michael's Netball Tournament on Wednesday where both the A and B teams played exceptionally well, with great skill and team spirit. The B team did not lose a game on their way to the final where they very narrowly missed out to Kent College. The A team also got through to their final where they lost 0 -1 to Granville in a nail-biting match.

Year 6 then swapped their netball skills for football, playing in matches against Amhesrt alongside Wally Hall teams from Years 3, 4 and 5. Wally brought more excellent skills and team work to the pitch where the Year 3 & 4 team won 1-0 and the Year 5 & 6 team lost by 0 - 1.

Our final sporting congratulations of the week go to the Year 3 Cross Country team (pictured) who achieved an amazing 2nd team place in their cross country tournament in a field of over 65 runners. Very well done indeed to speedy runners Emma, Isabelle, Caitlin, Dido, Sophie and Evie.
