Handball Superstars!

Olympian's in the Making

I would like to say a massive well done to the nine year 6 students who took part in a fast-paced and intense handball tournament earlier this afternoon. Competing against five other teams, Newport used their first game as a warm up and followed it up with four fantastic matches.

Winning three out of the five games, the children should be extremely proud of their achievements throughout the tournament. Up front, their was some spectacular shooting from Ollie Lewis-Gorton (I don't know how he didn't score more!) as well as some excellent dribbling and shooting skills from Arthur Cooper. Katso and Sienna, used their netball skills to block and defend, whilst Hayden and Cole and Harry Scotcher made some super saves in goal. Our team would not have been complete without Nathan 1 and Nathan 2, who added pace and quick passing skills to the games. Well done to all the children who took part today, you represented the school fantastically: showing great sportsmanship with each other and other teams. 

Finally, I would like to say a massive thank you to all the parents who attended the tournament today, giving up your time to cheer on and support the whole team. I know I and the children really appreciated it.
