The second school month carried on Springhill’s tradition of participation in a variety of sports.
The U11 girls’ football team football league started and the girls won four of their first five games. Unfortunately, they lost against Hook with Warsash Junior School in the first round of the County Cup before beating Moorlands Junior 4-0 in a friendly.
The only boys’ match played resulted in a close 2-1 defeat against Blackfield Junior in the first round of the County Cup.
Springhill won their first ever U11 Mixed Benchball tournament as they won every game including a tense final versus Holybrook Junior School.
Solent University brought dance mats into the Music Hall at the beginning of the month where all the children from Years 4, 5 and 6 danced away and enjoyed their fun session.
The cross country season on The Sports Centre continued as two more races took place before rain and wind cancelled the final two races. In excess of sixty runners turned up for the two races each week, which was a fantastic achievement.
The annual U9 boys’, as well as the U8 mixed, football tournaments at Stroud School were attended by pupils from Springhill.
The former team also defeated Our Lady and St Josephs’ Junior School in Pennington 5-4 in a friendly match.
The indoor athletics season started as twelve children from Year 2 took part in their festival whilst twelve Year 3 and 4 children finished runners up in their event.
The same number of children from Years 5 and 6 started their practice for their league starting after half term.
Sixteen children attended the Eastleigh Football Club Matchday Experience where they enjoyed a coaching session, ate and drank in the clubhouse, formed the guard of honour as the two teams came out and then watched Eastleigh draw with Chorley FC.
Twelve children descended on Cantell College for the annual table tennis City tournament where the three teams of 4 finished second, fourth and ninth, respectively.
Twelve children from Years 5 and 6 attended a fun packed Sports Festival at Woodlands Community College.
