Netball Fixture V Oakwood

The girls had a fixture last night against Oakwood at Cranworth Road.The year 7’s had a good turn out with 11 players. Chisom stepped up and played for the y9’s which was a very nice gesture. We had some debut players in Billie-Jo, Skye and Lola.

Although it was a close game the girls, unfortunately, came short by 2 goals, they had an excellent game showing a better performance working together as a team. With Billie-Jo playing a key role as centre holding the team together making great interceptions and movements for the ball. Alexandra and Darcie made a great defensive team making it difficult for Oakwood to score. Skie also played brilliantly for her first ever netball game.

Oakwood awarded Neve player of the match with another strong performance from our captain.

All girls played brilliantly, they are forming a strong team to go forward into future fixtures. Please congratulate all girls on their performance.

The Y8’s continued their excellent run of form tonight with a convincing 18-9 win over Oakwood. The girls worked really hard against a much taller opposition. The game was close for the first two quaters but Taylor Kelsall was on fire with her shooting to ensure we pulled away in the second half, this was helped by Zaneerah and Qirath’s excellent work feeding the ball to her.

The whole team are improving week by week which is a real pleasure to see.

Poppies Are Now Available To Buy For Remembrance Sunday

What is remembrance day and why do people wear poppies?

When did it all start?

  • World war I ended on the 11th November 1918, at 11 o’clock. This is when remembrance day started.
  • We remember all the soldiers who sacrificed their lives to fight for our freedom.
  • Since WWI this date has been used to remember all the fallen soldiers in all the wars where British soldiers have fought and are still fighting.

Why a poppy?

  • The symbol of remembrance day is the poppy since WWI and the famous poem – In Flanders Fields

How can you help?

  • Buy a poppy from H2 at any break time.
  • Poppies are £1 each (they are hand knitted.)
  • Buy one for yourself and maybe for people at home too!
  • Do you bit! Britain needs you!!!

Why a minutes silence on 11-11 at 11am?

  • Time to reflect
  • Time to remember the sacrifice and be thankful.
  • Time to think about those soldiers fighting today for our freedom

11th November 2017 at 11.00am

  • Take that minute of silence to remember, think and be thankful for our armed forces.
