Today 8 students from Year 6 competed in the Tower Hamlets Mini Orange 5/6 Tennis Competition at Bethnal Green Gardens! As you know summer term can be busy, last week I was away with Year 5 and there have been other exciting events happening, so we only managed to squeeze in ONE practice session!! However, due to the hard work and determination of both teams we powered through our group stage matches and Team 2 battled all the way to the Semi-Finals! (after winning their group fixture!!!) against the eventual winners St.Mattias! An amazing day full of talent and skill - every single team member won at least 2-3 of their matches! Special mention to Kaniz and Jawad, you both stepped out of your comfort zones today and this had positive effect on your performance! Another mention to Kaniz and Deiondre who won 15-3 in their doubles match! WOW - that is such an achievement! I am really proud of you all because you had great sportsmanship and came away with a positive attitude towards the day! A day to remember for sure! A BIG Thank you to Lee Murray from THYSF for giving the children this opportunity today and also for his amazing work in coaching the children too.
