 Rugby:

On Monday, twenty-eight year 4 pupils represented the School in the U9 rugby teams fixture v Hill House School at Valley Road. With very little contact time before the games, the pupils performed admirably against a strong Yorkshire school.

The A team were involved in a tight game but lost narrowly 12 tries to 10 tries

The B team were involved in an even closer game and won 8 tries to 7 tries

The C team looked the most comfortable and ran in 10 tries to 6 tries

Many thanks to Mr Cordy, Mr Hamilton and Mr Allison for some fantastic coaching and to the pupils for a great afternoon of rugby.

Ice Skating

Congratulations to Sarah L who came first in her category with an outstanding score almost six points ahead of the next place down.   She achieved her next level and had the highest overall mark for all ages out of 86 girls.
