PGL Netball Tour 2012

The highlight of the netball season has to be the netball tour to PGL Liddington. Fourteen pupils had a weekend away playing netball against teams from all around the country including Roundwood, Ruislip, Sibford,  Taunton and Chumleigh. All the pupils had a great time, they abseiled, went on the vertical challenge, swung on the giant swing and had a history lesson while doing archery. Yes, Mrs White did kill a Norman with her arrow – although no one was actually hurt. Above all the squads played fantastic netball with the Yr 11 finishing 3rd in the Cup competition and the Yr 9/10 finishing 2nd in the Plate competition.

The pupils and staff involved where Laura Champ, Sophie Webber, Beth Matthews, Charlotte Parnall, , Harriet Dawson, Amy Meeson, Kate Marks, Lizzie Maunder, Maddy Benyon, Rosalie Endacott, Lisa Barton, Tory Sleep, Emma Gillard, Millie Boardman, Mrs White and Mrs Gardner. Well done and it was great FUN!!

St Joseph’s School went the extra mile on Tuesday 20th March for Sport Relief.  In total 210 pupils, 30 members of staff and 30 parents took part in the Sport Relief Mile at St Joseph’s School.

The junior school went first with children from 3 to 11 years completing 8 laps of the school field to complete their mile. The children were enjoying themselves so much many of them managed a few extra laps!

The senior school Sport Relief Mile took place around the new cross country course, Mrs Rowe (Head Teacher) was among the first to cross the river (pictured below) and complete her mile for Sport Relief.

St Joseph’s School has raised over £300 for Sport Relief this year. Thanks must go to all parents, staff and pupils who have participated in the mile and made the event a success.
