Sydenham sporting update

Last week was a busy one for PE:

On Monday Year 8 beat the Strood Academy and St Dunstans at U13 Kent netball tournament. Tuesday saw pupils and teachers from Blackheath High and South Hampstead High enjoy a voyage of cricket discovery with our girls, hosted by Lydia Greenway (International cricketer and founder of ‘Cricket for Girls’), along with the U12 B & C netball teams beating Woodmansterne and KS3 & KS4 competing at the Badminton London Youth Games. Wednesday was a win against Sedgehill for both year 7 and 9 and the first of the Unity Through Diversity Dance Shows, and Thursday  saw year 7 beat Radnor Place, Hayes School, Maidstone Grammar, Colfe’s, King’s Rochester at the U12 Kent Netball Tournament. They lost to Tonbridge School in the quarter finals but are now one of the top 8 teams in Kent: a fantastic achievement!  Friday was a well deserved rest.

 

The PE department are delighted that three Sydenham girls did very well in the trials for Lewisham Mini Marathon on Saturday with Ellie 1st , Amelia 3rd and India 4th . Hopefully that means they will all qualify to run! They are also very pleased that Frances Newe has been selected to swim representing ESSA London, at the English Schools Swimming Association National Inter – Divisional Championships!

What talented, hard working sportswomen we have at Sydenham!
