A huge well done to our cross country team who were in action for the first time on Saturday morning (18th January). They braved the cold weather to complete the one mile course at Bullion Lane. The girls team was made up of Amelia, Isobel and Rosie from Year 6 and Natalia, Stephanie and Charlie from Year 5. The boys were represented by Seth A and Oliver from Year 6 and Ashton and Bobby from Year 5. They were all determined to finish the course and supported each other the whole way round. A special well done to Stephanie and Isobel who made it into the top 10 finishers, with Stephanie coming 4th and Isobel 10th. Well done everyone. We look forward to seeing you in action again next week!

The Year 5/6 football team played in the first round of the Bishop’s Cup last night (2nd October). The team was made up of Nathan S, Nathan H and Seth from Year 6, and Annalise, Katie, Oliver, George and Nicholas from Year 5. There was some excellent football on show, but most importantly a great team spirit and determination from each and every player. Although the team played great football, they just missed out on making it through to the next round of the Bishop’s Cup, with St. John Boste and St. Mary’s scoring one goal each. The team will now enter the Bishop Cunningham Cup and we have high hopes after their impressive performance last night. Well played everyone!
