We have also had another successful hockey weekend. The U12A team traveled to Lytham for a fun filled day of hockey at the Jean Torrance tournament. They Played fantastic and came out as over all winner of the Plate competition. One very proud PE teacher.
What a fantastic afternoon of sport we have had with our hockey and netball teams. Pearls High School in South Africa are currently touring the UK and our students have had the privilege of playing against them.
Our students were bowled over by their outstanding abilities and professionalism…some of their students even brought resistance bands and weights to warm up with.
The matches were a fantastic display of skill and resilience in what we consider quite “hot” conditions, and one of the hockey squads managed to come away with a win.
They even treated us to a song.
This was a fantastic experience for everyone involved and something they will definitely remember.
U16 – Runners up!We would like to congratulate our hockey teams for their huge success. We had 3 squads qualifying for the tier 2 or 3 National Finals in London, playing from Monday though to Thursday at the Lee Valley stadium. Mrs Hardicre has been with every team since Monday accompanied by Dr Roberts, Mrs Walker, Miss Murtagh and our extremely supportive parents at various stages throughout the competition.
Our U14/15 squads suffered some tough defeats playing some of the best schools in the country and our U16s made it to the final and have come away from the competition as runners up. A huge achievement!
