NEWS

The new term sees the start of the 2019 basketball season with practices and matches taking place throughout the next few weeks. Each year group has a lunchtime practice session available to all students with teams competing in the District Basketball Leagues. Also on Wednesday and Thursday the popular gymnastics club has started with students working towards the District festival later in the term. Netball is also continuing for the younger years with our Year 7,8,9 and 10 football teams also looking forward to their respective District League Football finals.

This term will also see the Year 12 Cambridge Technical Sports students taking a series of coaching sessions with the younger students. It is great to see our senior students making such a positive contribution to school sport as part of their course. To add to this a new group of Year 10 trainee Sports Leaders begin this week with their first challenge to lead and support the next Primary Sports festival on Friday 25th January.

There is lots to look forward to including hopefully many students who have made the decision to lead a more active and healthy lifestyle in 2019. Our Health Week is taking place in March and we look forward to seeing if our students can show improved fitness levels. Regular participation in exercise both in and out of school will really make a difference.

SPORTS REPORTS

FOOTBALL

Year 10A v Queens B (District League) – Mr O’Kelly

Date : Monday 14th January 2019

Result : Won 3-1

Scorers :  Reid Sims 3

Squad :  Jesse Harry-Brown, Harris Plant, Archie Sykes, Leo Enright, Ben Castello, Jake Norris-Ataie, George Rowe, Irvine Tannor, Jay Marsh, Zac Khan, Luke Andrews, Reid Sims, Jalen Sotomy

Commended performances : George Rowe

Comment : A battling performance from the team against our local rival school, saw BMS come out as victors. With Ried making the game uncomfortable for the opposition defence and the midfield working tirelessly to win the ball back, BMS were far too strong for Queens and should have won by a clearer margin.

Netball

Year 10 v St Clement Danes – Mrs Cartledge

Date Thursday 10th January 2019

Result Won 14-12

Squad– S Narraway, A Hutchison, G Brass, B Patel, M Hayes, E Rowe, A Elman, J Benveniste

Commended Performances- S Narroway for fantastic interceptions and accurate shooting.

Comment- This was the year 10’s last league game this season. The girls had to really battle hard to secure this win. They all made interceptions and worked hard down court to get free and defend. As always the girls displayed a really gritty attitude and thoroughly deserved this win.

Girls Football Festival at Arsenal

On Monday 14th January, we took some girls from our u15’s team to a football festival at the Arsenal Training ground. The day involved some short training sessions with Arsenal coaches & friendly 7 a side matches between 6 schools that were involved. The team performed very well winning 3/6 with only 2 defeats. The session was ended with a Q&A with some of the players. Overall, it was a fun and inspiring day for all of the girls involved.
