Staff vs Students Netball Tournament

Well done to all the Staff, Post 16 students and Year 11 students that took part in the Staff vs Students Netball Tournament on Friday 9th February 2024. 

Poor weather forced the event indoors at the last minute but that did not quell the enthusiasm from all present. Staff arrived confident of a win but were faced with youthful exuberance from the Post 16 students and a well  polished and practiced squad from Year 11. The staff were able to field two teams and stalwarts Mrs Bennett and Mrs Borgan-Davies used all their leadership and knowledge to shepherd their less able colleagues into position. Mr Workman opened the scoring against the Year 12 squad whilst Mr Stapleton shot in for two more against the Year 13 squad. Indeed it was Harry from the Year 13 squad who picked up the sharp shooter award with most scores. With 5 teams all competing on the one court it was fast and furious with Year 11 beating the red bibbed staff and drawing with Post 16 yellow. Pink bibbed staff failed to win but mustered a draw against Post 16 yellow. As the lunch rattled to a frenetic conclusion all teams finish all lined up for a team photo full of smiles and promises to repeat the event later in the Spring when the weather improves.
