Prep School Sporting Update

It’s been a fabulous week for our Sydenham Netball teams. On Monday Y6 played St Dunstans Prep and both our A/B teams won their matches 5-4 and 8-0. On Tuesday our Y4 girls had their first competitive match against Oakfield Prep. There was some excellent netball played with a win and a loss. On Thursday our Y6 A/B netball teams competed in the Lewisham Schools Netball Tournament. 18 Junior schools from across the Borough came to Sydenham High Senior school for an afternoon of Netball. Teams were mixed but we didn’t let this put us off with our A team winning their group and our B team narrowly missing out on the top spot by 1 goal! Our A team won their semi final and we were then in the FINAL against St. Stephens. It was a tense beginning as the score was 2-2 but then the girls found their form and we WON with a final score of 7-2. This means we will now go on to represent Lewisham in the London Youth Games held at Crystal Palace in March. This was a fantastic achievement for our girls as they had all worked so hard and given 100%.. Mrs White was immensely proud of them all and they thoroughly deserve their shiny new trophy! CONGRATULATIONS!

We finished the week with a Cross Country at Rosemead for our Y3-6 girls. We enjoyed some fantastic results in this event with Y4 winning their year group competition, Luna (Y6) securing bronze medal, Salome (Y4) securing silver and Holly (Y4) securing bronze. We are very proud of all our runners!

Huge congratulations to Juliette in year 5 who won a bronze medal at the White Rose Diving Competition in Leeds this weekend – competing against divers from across England, Scotland and Northern Ireland.

Next week is another busy sporting week with plenty of teams in action. Y4 ABCD Netball teams are participating at the Croydon High U9 Netball Tournament on Monday and also participating in the Lewisham Netball festival on Tuesday which we are hosting at Senior School. Y6 girls will be representing us in the Lewisham Hockey Tournament also at Senior school on Thursday. Our week culminates with our KS2 INTERHOUSE CROSS COUNTRY on Friday afternoon which is held at Crystal Palace Park. Girls may wear their House t-shirts and all girls will earn points for their house. Spectators are very welcome at this event. We wish ALL our girls participating in sporting events next week the best of luck!
