Our netball "A" team had a superb win at this year's netball tournament held at the Gryphon school this April. We beat Abbey Primary, Thornford, Buckland Newton and Bishops Caundle in the knockout stages and Bradford Abbas in the final. Well done to one and all including our excellent coach Mrs Fiona Payne.
The winning Year 6 Netball Team challenged the staff to a netball match. They were only just pipped to the winning post, the staff winning by 8 to 7. The year 6 team spokesman said " we were being kind to the staff and let them win by one goal". The teams were cheered on by Angela Hole in her rara skirt. The staff team admitted to being very puffed but they enjoyed and suprised themselves with their success.
Six children from Year 4 went to Sherborne Abbey primary school on Wednesday June 21st 2006 to take part in a science challenge day. There were children from both Sherborne schools, William Barnes, Stalbridge and ourselves. They had to make buggies powered by wind, elastic or balloons. Click to see all the pictures.
The 7th annual It's a Knockout was held this year at Thornford CE Primary School on Saturday 24th June 2006. The theme this year was famous films and our team led by our Captain Jackie Pitcher was representing the Sound of Music. Following six games of physical skill and mental intrigue we pipped all the other six schools to the post winning with a very healthy 48 points. And if that wasn't honour enough we will be hosting it next year eight years after its inception by our PTA at St Andrew's. Team members were Jackie and Mark Pitcher, Alex and Gavin Locke, Sam Willis, Vicky Brinsford (who also organised our super cheerleaders), Colin Hart and last but by no means least, Nick Clegg. Thank you to all team members, cheerleaders and supporters.
