Congratulations to all the girls who received colours and special awards in sports assembly in recognition of their dedication to and success in school sport. Special mention to Holly in year 9 who was presented with Sports Personality of the Year Open Category for her success in swimming and Amy in Year 10 who was awarded the Jenny Stansby Award for Commitment to School Sport.
Congratulations to Laura in Year 8 who has been playing for the Greater Manchester County Netball Academy this year and has recently been selected to attend the first trial for regional selection. The region consists of Greater Manchester, Cheshire, Lancashire, Cumbria and Merseyside.
Laura played in a tournament as part of the trial which was a fabulous atmosphere; she says she was excited yet nervous to be competing! The day was a success and she thoroughly enjoyed playing with, and against some of the best players across the county. She has been selected to attend the summer training camps where she will work alongside top coaches and other talented players to earn a place at the final trial which will determine whether or not she gets into the regional programme next season. This is a fantastic achievement and we wish Laura luck over the summer and hope that she is successful in her trials; we are very proud!
Again we have seen our talented A level artists showcase their wonderful artwork at the annual Summer Exhibition. All of the girls worked hard throughout the the year, creating skilled and diverse work. These ranged from delicate hand cut paper dress designs, stunning painted portraits and textile explorations to some of the most exquisite drawings and sculptural pieces. We had a lovely preview evening where the girls brought their families and friends to celebrate their achievements. The exhibition also delighted the Year 5s and their parents when visiting the school for the Open evening, many of whom were full of compliments and were very impressed with the high standard.
We are coming to towards the end of another season. The year 7 and 10 teams played Loreto in their final matches.
The year 7 ‘A team won by 32 games to 28. The ‘B’ team won by 43 games to 7. Well done to both teams for such excellent results. Thank you very much to Mrs Bamford for taking the match
The year 10 ‘A’ team won by 35 games to 22 and the ‘B’ team lost by 18 games to 33. In this game some of the players were playing their first match for school. Even though they lost they enjoyed playing and played some very good tennis at times.
