The Y8 and 9 netballers had their first game of the new year this week against St Bernards.

The Y9 team, captained by Abbie Shaw, won 14-3 with a solid performance from all players. The Y8 team, who are always a force to be reckoned with, were also victorious, winning their match 16-4.

A devastating loss but the team showed resilience and some excellent basketball skills were on display throughout.

Table Tennis

The table tennis team played their last league fixture this week, knowing that a victory would secure a top-two finish and a place in the final. They won comfortably against a strong St Bernards side, which means they now play in the final on Tuesday against Hayfield.


The Y7/8 football team finished their season with two wins this week. A 5-0 victory against Danum and 1-0 against Armthorpe sees their girls at the top of the league. Goals came from Kenzie, Lucie (x3), Madi and Lexie.
