Netball and Football Sports Tour
During the Easter break a selected group of our students had the chance to attend a Netball and Football sports tour to Center Parcs Limburgse Peel in Holland. The trip was organised by the Sports Department and gave the students an opportunity to play against other schools. Students had four full on days of activities which included coaching sessions, matches, evening swimming, a disco and a visit to PSV Eindhoven.
We had some fantastic results from the matches:
Year 9 girls’ netball team won all 4 games in the premiership to be crowned tour champions. Special mention to Jess who received the ‘exceptional player of the tournament’ award selected by England Netball.
Year 10 girls’ blue netball team won 2 and lost 2 to come third in the premiership and Year 10 white won 2, lost 2 to finish third in division 1.
Girls’ Football saw St Georges Academy beat Dendron College 2-1 with superb goals from captains Jess and Erin.
A third place finish for the boys in the premiership football tournament with two draws and a win!
Overall everyone had a brilliant time and Miss Cox couldn’t reiterate enough what an absolute pleasure the students were and how extremely proud she was of their sporting achievements, their attitudes and behaviours and of course the way they represented St George’s Academy!
