Even with a week off for half-term, this month proved to be a busy one as always.
4MR continued their swimming lessons at Oaklands Community Pool whilst half of 5KA enjoyed a fencing lesson at King Edward VI School.
The badminton leagues reached their conclusion with the girls' 'A' team (Hannah, Sofia, Marjane and Eva) winning all their games to win the girls' league. The former two players then joined forces to win the Girls' Doubles Tournament but some great badminton was displayed by all our players.
The U11 girls' football team reached the semi finals of the Premier League Tournament; our boys' team played just as well to reach the quarter finals of their event. The boys' team, unfortunately, lost two of their three league games but still have a chance of winning their league in the last set of matches next month. They played superbly to beat Oakwood 4-1 to reach the City Cup final. The girls' 'A' team won and drew their latest football league matches, whilst the 'B' team suffered two defeats. A tournament at St Mark's School in Salisbury, however, resulted in the 'A' team's first trophy of the season as they beat a strong Anton School 1-0 in the final.
Thirteen Year 2 children practised and improved their racket skills at Bitterne Park School. Finally, the Year 3/4 and 5/6 tag rugby teams braved the weather to play a friendly against Townhill Park School. Sports clubs and games lessons took place throughout the month.
At Springhill, we have we have built a strong working and community link with Team Solent Basketball Club.
