Half term sports round up

This half term we took part in our first ever handball competition and our team played extremely well. They had a very exciting and enjoyable afternoon competing against other local schools and worked well supporting each other. Our girls’ netball team have been practising their skills with friendly matches against St Michael’s, winning all our games. In football news, our girls played a friendly against Temple Sutton.

They conducted themselves extremely well as they stopped members of the public to ask them questions
