Our team was made up of 11 people: Charlie, Naomi, Safiyyah, Marie, Courtney, Danika, Alisha, Molly, Lauren, Jessica and Kenady.

Our first match was against Oakwood school and we won! Our second was against St Bernards and we also won that match.

The third martch was against Dinnington and unfortunately we lost this 3 ½ – 3 – which was a very close game.

Fourth we played Thrybergh and we drew 3 ½ each. The fifth match was very intense as we were up against Wickersley and unfortunately we lost that match 6 ½- 3.

Our initial winning streak appeared to be over and in the end we lost our final two matches against Wath and Wingfield.
The player of the tournament was Marie and this was very well deserved – Well done Marie!

Inspiring Future Musicians!

On Wednesday 5th March, Year 9 students at Clifton Community School participated in an afternoon drumming workshop with Jeff Rich, the drummer from Status Quo!

The inspirational event provided students with an insight into the music Industry and took them through a historical tour of the development of the drum kit.

Students were invited to perform with Jeff as part of the workshop and several drum students had the chance to perform on Jeff’s personal drum kit.

All Year 9 students that took part will receive a postcard home with Jeff’s autograph, whilst students who performed will get the autographed postcard with their personal performance photograph on the front!
