1st place triumph for Team A
A big well done to the Year 5/6 Handball team who took part in the Tower Hamlets Handball Competition today. Team B played well but were unfortunately knocked out in the group stages with two draws and two losses. Team A made it all the way through the knock out stages and onto the semi finals resulting in a final game with the excellent Stepney Green Coats. A very close game but Virginia played with all they had and won the final.
Special mention to Soumia Yr 6 who really kept the games alive with not only her skills but her drive to win. Theo and I were so proud of how much determination you had today.
''I have confidence and confidence in me''
''I have never experienced a day like this''
I have been to many competitions and felt overwhelmed by Virginia's spirit and performance,but today I am utterly speechless.
Our Year 5/6 Girls Kwik-Cricket stormed all the way through their matches at the London Youth Games and finished in 3rd place taking home bronze medals. Out of 6 matches, starting in the group stage all the way to the semi finals, they won 5. They worked as a team and performed with such drive and passion.
Every single one of them brought something to the team and made it a day to remember. I am so proud that not only did we get asked to represent Tower Hamlets, we are now titled as the 3rd best Year 5/6 Girls Kwik- Cricket Team in LONDON!!!
