Well done to our year 3 and 4 hockey team who reached the semi final of the Oadby & Wigston hockey tournament.

Well done to all the children who represented the school at the Oadby & Wigston Hockey Tournament!

Good attitude and skill shown in all three games with the team winning two matches and losing one. We were unlucky not to qualify for the semi finals; scoring less goals than other teams with the same points.

Thank you to parents for coming along and supporting the children!

The boys kicked on from their draw against Glen Hills with a convincing 3-0 win against an in-form Parklands Primary. Goals from Rhys and Dhruv capped an excellent team performance- Dhruv’s direct goal from a corner was sublime!

Curtis, Rocco and Ollie looked solid in defence, Mr Morton was very pleased with their clean sheet. Charlie and Max were as determined as ever in midfield, with Charlie captaining the team in a professional style.

Well done boys, we are proud of you!
