They look absolutely amazing and the children cannot wait to represent the school wearing these. Also a big thank you to Mr Barry Neiman for his kind donation towards new Netball bibs and under armours for the team.
Year 6 Rugby World Cup Tournament
On Friday 11th October, ten Year 6 children were chosen to take part in a competitive, Rugby World Cup themed tournament at Welwyn Garden City Rugby Club. We competed against a range of different schools and managed to win all of our groups games in convincing fashion, with the team playing some scintillating rugby at times. We went through to the Plate knockout stages and managed to win that against a good St Michaels team. In the final, we faced Oaklands as the heavens opened. The rain made the ball slippery and despite our best efforts, we lost 6-5. Well done to all the children who represented their school fantastically well.
Year 6 Saracens Tag Rugby tournament at Welwyn Garden City Rugby Club - Wednesday 9th October
Year 6 were very excited to have been invited to take part in a district rugby tournament this afternoon which was hosted by Saracens RFC Foundation. The tournament was non-competitive and, therefore, scores were not allowed to be recorded. This reporter would, however, like to praise all four of our mixed teams for some excellent rugby playing and for doing exceptionally well throughout the afternoon. Tries were being regularly scored on all four pitches and we were continually praised for also demonstrating honest, sporting behaviour throughout. Congratulations to highest scorer Enya, who managed to achieve twelve tries (!) and also to Gabriel, who was scouted by the Saracens coaches as being someone who could play club rugby at a very high level. You all played and behaved brilliantly, Year 6, and were a joy to take to the tournament. Well done!
