Solent University students started a lunchtime sports club for sixteen Year 6 children. Twelve children from Year 1 and 2 attended a Multi Ball Festival at Woodlands Community College whilst the same number of children from the same two year groups practised and improved their racket skills and catching at St George Catholic College.
The U11 mixed badminton league started at Bitterne Park Secondary School and at the end of the month the three teams of four were lying 2nd (girls and mixed) and 3rd (boys) in their respective leagues.
Our U9 boys’ team, U11 boys’ team and U11 girls’ football teams all travelled to Our Lady and St Joseph’s School in Pennington where they experienced mixed fortunes. The former won convincingly, the latter lost, whilst the U11 boys’ team earned a hard fought 1-1 draw.
Twelve Year 3 and 4 children attended the City Badminton Festival where they took part in skills to improve their ability in this sport.
The school achieved their best ever finish in the City Gymnastics Festival in Winchester where the twelve children performed three routines. An excellent performance ensured the children finished runners up and therefore qualified for The Hampshire and Isle Of Wight Games in the summer term.
Our U11 boys' and girls' teams entered the annual Premier League Tournament at Goals where the former just missed out on qualification to the latter stages from their group games, whilst the girls’ team qualified from their group before agonisingly losing 3-2 to just miss out on Finals Day at Staplewood training ground next month.
The U11 mixed indoor athletics team ran, threw and jumped to the best of their ability at the City Mixed Indoor Athletics Tournament where they finished a very creditable third.
As the month drew to a close, the school held its annual Health Week to draw more attention to the importance and enjoyment of exercise, eating healthily, drinking water and generally looking after our body. Ex pupil Dare, who plays for Southampton U23 team, students from Solent University and first team players Tom Bearwish, Sam Smart and Jake Scrimshaw from Eastleigh Football Club came into school and talked to the children.
