This year the teachers from all the schools in the area, including St James, have organised a High 5 Netball league for year 5 and 6 children, that will run throughout the year. The league consists of five schools that will compete in a home and away match.
On Thursday, 28th September St James had their first match of the league against Sandal Castle at home. The weather was fantastic and the children were enthusiastic, which made for a positive start to the afternoon. It continued to get better, as the game started and everyone from both schools played fairly, were considerate to others and played some great netball.
All the children from St James played as a team and in all positions, and as a result came away with a victory. The final score was 10 – 0 to St James!
Both schools put in 100% effort, cheered for all the children and showed fantastic sportsmanship – myself and Mrs Woodward couldn’t be prouder of these nine children.
The children fully enjoyed their afternoon and I would like to thank all our parents and staff, who supported us during the match!
