Netball Festival

On Thursday 22nd June, Miss Kneller and our Year 5 and 6 Netball team went to a Netball Festival organised by Blundell’s School. The competition involved two leagues of seven local Primary Schools in each group.

Our A Team had a challenging, yet rewarding experience showing off their new skills considering they have had little competition experience. They showed great sportsmanship and collaboration.

Our B Team successfully remained undefeated, due to Oaklee, Aiden and Oliver’s fantastic shooting and the rest of the team’s unstoppable attacking and defensive skills.  A great start to a new netball journey!

Well done to all of them.

Year 6 Cricket festival at THS

On Tuesday 20th June, 12 Year 6 children attended a cricket festival organised by Tiverton High School at the all-weather astro turf. We entered two mixed teams of girls and boys and faced other primary schools, Tidcombe, St Johns and Halberton.  Both teams played back-to-back games, winning two and losing one.

All players played incredibly well and showed amazing team spirit. Many of them had never played cricket before. However, they soon picked up the rules and genuinely enjoyed the game, playing some great cricket, with some exceptional bowling and batting.

What a fabulous representation of sport at HPS, a credit to the school. Well done all!
