Sport continued to play a large role in the ongoing activities at Springhill as we approached the summer holidays.
Three teams entered the city U11 mixed tennis championships and finished 1st, 2nd and 3rd - an amazing performance and well done to all 12 players!
Our U11 boys' cricket team defeated Locks Heath Junior School convincingly to reach the quarter finals of the County Cup. Unfortunately, what with our Year 6 being on their residential week at Fairthorne Manor, we had to forfeit that match - but well played to our team. The U10 boys' team lost both of their group matches in their version of the County Cup and so could not progress to the latter stages of that competition. Our next generation of cricketers (Years 3 and 4) played two friendly matches against two very strong teams from Stroud School, losing both but gaining valuable practice.
The football season finally finished and our U11 team suffered heartbreak as they lost 2-1 to Abbotswood in the City Cup final. The U11 rounders team took part in the rounders tournament, where they finished 7th, and the final tournament of the school year saw twelve Year 2 children take part in a boccia festival.
All of Year 2 took part in some Talent Identification with diving coaches from the Quays.
The final event of the year was the annual City Awards, where twenty-eight children were presented with the eighteen trophies won this year.
Well done to all the players who have represented the school this year and to all the children who have tried their best in their games and PE lessons. Sport at the school is as strong as ever!
At Springhill, we have we have built a strong working and community link with Team Solent Basketball Club.
