It has been a busy time for fixtures of late with various children engaging in a range of matches and events. Over two thirds of the Junior children have represented the School already this year in different sporting competitions.
All the Juniors also took part in the recent inter-house Cross-Country, which saw lots of wonderful achievements by individuals and the houses, with Arkwright just pipping Bradshaw to the trophy.
In our matches, the High-5 team have had lots of wins. One team are currently unbeaten from the five matches they have had, while we were also able to give a whole team their High-5 debuts. This team managed to win two of their matches.
We’ve also played Football both at Under 11 and Under 9 level, with many great goals, passes, tackles and saves including one great headed goal, always a rarity at Primary-age level!
We’ve taken part in a tag-rugby festival over at Burnage Rugby Club, led by their excellent coaches. In the local school Cross-Country we had many children running and a special mention to our Year 4 girl who came in 4th from a field of well over 50 runners! Coming up we have Dodgeball, Basketball, Swimming and more Football, Rugby and High-5.
It’s always a delight to see the children representing the School with such pride and their attitude and behaviour is always excellent and regularly praised by others. The children gain so much from these type of events and we all so proud of their many wonderful achievements.
