On Thursday 30th June, a team of seven Year 6 children travelled to Basildon Sporting Village to take part in the Essex Summer School Games. They had previously competed in heats and the Chelmsford area finals to earn their place in this competition and they were all keen to do their very best.
The team played 10 matches against other regional winners. The high standards of the netball displayed by our magnificent team were frequently commented upon, not just by the coaches, staff and family members with them but by other teams, teachers and spectators who were quite in awe of the way they worked as a unit and the skill that they showed.
v Barons Court - won 12-0
v St Marys - won 10-0
v Temple Sutton - won 9-0
v Kelvedon St Marys - won 10-2
v Whitebridge - won 14-0
v Henham & Ugley - won 12-1
v Deneholm - won 7-0
v OLOR - won 11-2
