Girls – don’t forget the final meeting on Thursday 2nd July in the gym at lunchtime. Bring your lunch. It may go on into period 5. We will go though everything you could possible want to know. You will be given 2 booklets : one for you to take with you on the tour and one for your parents. Please bring a pen to write further notes if required. You will also be given your new stick bag and small travel bag. At the moment I do not know if your kit or large bag for all your clothes will be ready by then or not. If it is I will let you know. We may have to meet again.

Well done girls. There was some great tennis played
The Junior and Intermediate Athletics teams competed in the North West Regional A Final on Tuesday 16th June. Perfect weather for Athletics at Robin Park, Wigan.
As it was Emma Simpson’s birthday – her mum very kindly baked us some speciality cakes!!! And they were delicious.
There were some pleasing results all round.
A flying start for Victoria and Assante, put Victoria in 2nd place (13.3s) and a personal best time for Assante (13.4s).
A great achievement for the AGGS athletes to get both teams to the A Final, competing against the best teams from Greater Manchester, Lancashire, Cumbria, Merseyside and Cheshire.
The Inters finished 9th overall, but scored more points than in the qualifying County round. The Juniors finished in 6th place.
Well done – a very enjoyable, successful day.
Congratulation to the year 8 teams for their results in this friendly match.
Team 1 won by 38 games to 14

Disappointing to lose to Urmston in the first match which cost us a place in the Final. Unusually, there wasn’t a semi-final – had there been we would have been in it and I feel sure we could have progressed to the final and won, because the team settled after the first match and played some very good rounders.
