Hockey Team Sticks At It To Win Gold

grass-hockey-hiWhilst the school's budding musicians were entertaining parents in the hall yesterday, another group of pupils were taking part in the 2013 KLB Mini Hockey Festival. Mrs Jones' popular after-school club has meant that the school has a good pool of hockey players to draw from so finding a winning 5-a-side team shouldn't have posed too big a problem! 

The Year 6 boys team made up of Oliver W, Hal S, Leo W, Archie C and Hayden B were keen to take part and a noteable competitive spirit filled the atmosphere of the games... despite the 'festival' title! Each game lasted 5-minutes a half and the standard of hockey was high.

The boys started by taking on 2 Kingswood teams to win 5-0 and then 3-0. They continued their winning streak with a win over local rivals The British School in a closely fought 4-2 match to then take on North Nibley counterparts and secure a 2-0 victory.

The string of wins meant that the boys finished the festival in first place. Well done to all of you on a solid performance and representing the school so proudly!
