22.11.18  Inter School Netball Tournament Round 1

Well done to all of the Year 5 and 6 pupils who competed this week for the school in the first stages of the Inter School Netball Tournament.  On a cold a blustery evening, the children won their games and are looking forward to the next stages in 2019. 
The Green team won 10-0 against Willingham and then 9-0 against Histon and Impington - some amazing netball played and we completely dominated both matches.

The Red team won 6-1 against Willingham and then 8-0 against Histon and Impington. This was a newly put together team of many players new to netball and they played fantastically well.

All children should be extremely proud of their performances and the way in which they represented the school.
