On Friday, we took our Girl’s football team and the Year 3/4 tennis team to the annual School Games competition at Stoke Mandeville Stadium. TheSchoolGamesinvolves 1500 young people, representing theirschooland competing against other Buckinghamshire and Milton Keynesschoolsin 13 different sports.
The girl’s football qualified as they won their League in the Spring term, scoring over 10 gals in the three matches. The tennis team qualified as they won a Misbourne tournament, winning almost every match.
On the day, the girl’s football team went unbeaten. However, due to the short length of matches, we found it difficult to break defences down. We only conceded 1 goal all day but unfortunately missed out on the semi-finals by one point. Just before we were about to leave, the organisers came to find the girl’s and explain we could not leave the day unbeaten and without a trophy. We were therefore awarded the ‘School Games Fairplay Award.’ An amazing achievement to cap an amazing two years’ worth of hard work.
The tennis team qualified as they won their competition earlier this term at the Misbourne tournament, winning almost every match.
