Pupils have enjoyed participating in the ISA Netball Tournament and Brooke Priory Cross Country Competition recently.
St Peter's pupils once again travelled to Stafford with Mr Burrows to take part in the Independent Schools Association Netball Tournament. Our team started the tournament ‘on fire’, dominating the ball and having endless opportunities to score, but our inability on the day to get the ball into the net cost us the first two matches, losing 3-2 and 2-1. The team worked hard to maintain their high level performances but succumbed to two more defeats, though with less tight margins.
The mark of a good team with a fantastic attitude is the ability to recover, and our team did exactly that, winning the following two matches comfortably 6-0 and 4-1 with some more dominant play. Our final match was against home team Stafford (already champions by this point) and a very impressive performance saw us lose out despite showing some real quality in play. Overall the team finished 5th. We scored in every game, and our first defeat, when we were defeated 3-2 was against the school that finished 2nd, and we were very much on top throughout the match.
Brooke Priory Cross Country
This year’s competition was once again held at Shorne Hill and as always, proved to be a very well organised and friendly experience for all those taking part, both participants and families. The weather held and the ground was firm for the runners. Our team of runners was raring to run and all of them gave their usual 100%. Each of the races contained more than fifty runners with schools from all over the region attending. The children’s excitement was wonderful to see! We are pleased to report that all our children finished their races, and many were sprinting to the finish line!
